Yesterday Bognor Regis Town defender James Crane announced that he had decided to leave the Nyewood Lane club after ten years, as he was looking for a new challenge. It has just been announced that he has found that challenge already, along the Sussex coast at Worthing.
Speaking to the Worthing FC website, Crane explained:
‘When my release was announced, I had a few offers, clubs phoning me. I know Adam (Hinshelwood) well and I wanted to play for a club who want to progress and win things. This club is very much a sleeping giant, it’s a perfect fit for me, the professional feel around it is something that works.'
Worthing supporters have a large banner which proclaims that they'd 'Rather be a rebel than a rock'- a reference to their rivalry with Bognor and the club's nicknames. They'll be delighted to have found that Crane feels the same way!
