Barns Green Finally Begin Their Sussex 2 Premier Campaign Against Worthing

Barns Green start their second stage of the season against Worthing Azurians on Saturday at The Rugby Park.

Barns Green's last outing was a win against Steyning

The last time the two faced off, it was in challenging conditions with heavy rain and slow underfoot. Barns Green came away with a narrow 12 - 0 victory that day, beginning a 6 game unbeaten run finishing top of the table with a final week win against Steyning. Worthing went on an equally impressive win, scoring a total of 232 points in 3 games and only letting in 12 over their own line finishing 2nd in the table to join Barns Green in Sussex 2 Premier.


Barns Green will welcome back Joe Serna and Matt Sprigge from injury. Serna picked up a shoulder tear in pre-season and is yet to play for the Green and Gold since returning back from his stint at Pulborough. Sprigge is also returning from a minor tear which he picked up in the opening minutes of the Crawley game in October.


Worthing has the advantage of having already played a game in Sussex 2 Premier in December although it was a 14-53 loss to title contenders Shoreham at home. On the other hand, Barns Green hasn't played since their 21-10 win against Steyning in November after their first two games were called off due to a rise in Covid cases.


Barns Green will be eager to get their season off to a winning start and will be chomping at the bit for a tough and physical match-up. Worthing will no doubt be equally as keen to respond to their loss against Shoreham so it is going to be an exciting and hard-fought game.


The game kicks off at 2 pm at The Rugby Park in Worthing.
