Worthing Raiders will attempt to maintain their good recent form when they kick things off in 2019 on Saturday.

Jody Levett’s men won successive National 2 South matches to see out the previous year in style and now turn their attention to a trip to Redruth.

Back-to-back victories have seen Raiders climb to seventh in the standings, giving them a platform to build on with 14 games of the season still to play.

Worthing’s first three fixtures in the new year are against Redruth, Clifton and Birmingham & Solihull - all teams that currently find themselves in the bottom half - so Levett’s troops have a chance to put down a marker at the start of 2019.

However with just eight points separating Raiders is seventh and 13th-placed Old Redcliffians, it’s paramount the Roundstone Lane outfit make a positive start this calendar year - starting at Redruth on Saturday.
