Shortly before yesterdays win at Margate, Worthing announced the signing of Carshalton Athletic defender Daniel Pappoe. He entered the fray for his new club for the first time as a second half substitute.
Daniel started his career with Chelsea as an Under Twelve, and went on to captain the side that won the FA Youth Cup in 2010.

It didn't work out for him at Brighton, and he went on to play for Hampton and Richmond Borough, Hemel Hempstead Town, Crawley Town, Dulwich Hamlet, and then made his Athletic debut in a draw against Worthing's closest rivals, Bognor Regis Town, back in September 2018. He made twenty eight appearances that season, and thirty six in the truncated campaign last year.
