Slough had been buoyed by their League Cup final win over Hampton on Thursday evening and finished the season on real high with a second half demolition of their fellow Rebels down at Worthing.

Slough's annual sponsored walk to the final away game of the season had seen six hardy souls set out earlier in the week and they were given a fantastic reception on their arrival at the Woodside in recognition of their sterling efforts to travel to the game on foot.

Slough opened up well and had the games first opportunity. Matt Murphy nodded down into the path of the onrushing Matt Seedel but the home defence did well to clear out the danger for a corner.

Worthing's first attack proved fruitful and they took the lead. A slick move ended with Alexander slotting home past Michael Parkin.

Matt Murphy did bring a good save from the home keeper as his low drive was parried away, Carbon being second to the rebound as the ball was cleared. Michael Murphy saw another long range drive crash off the top of the bar.

The second half saw Slough get their rewards for the good play the first half deserved. With four mintues gone, Mason crossed from inside the area on the right hand side, Seedel headed goalwards and the ball came back off the bar and was bundled home by Matt Murphy from less than a yard.

Slough got themselves in front with an hour gone. Mason was again the provider of the ball into the box with a back post cross from the left. Matt Muprhy left the ball to be attacked by the better placed Ian Hodges, whose headed effort was well saved but the ball fell into the middle of the six yard box and Seedel was first to it hitting the ball high into the net.

Seedel added his second fifteen minutes later to extend Slough's lead. Having been played through, he drove at the home defence and cut inside two covering defenders before calmly sidefooting past the keeper to put Slough three one up.

Seedel completed his hat-trick and saved the best til last. His cross was cleared out of the box but the strikers persistence saw him go and win the ball back. Moving forwards, he ghosted past three defenders before again calmly finishing the ball across the keeper and into the net.

It may not have been the best of seasons in the league, but Slough have certainly finished on a high and will be looking to take this good feeling into next season.
