Steve Smith hails Bishop's Stortford's Cambridge United loan ace Ben Worman

Loan star Ben Worman made it seven goals in 11 games to guide Bishop’s Stortford to an eye-catching 2-0 win over Haringey Borough on Saturday – and earned special praise from his manager.

The talented 17-year-old has been a revelation since arriving from Cambridge United and he scored in each half as the Blues beat the Bostik League, Premier Division’s second-placed side at the ProKit UK Stadium.

“I’ve got to give a special mention to Ben Worman,” said Stortford owner and joint-manager Steve Smith, whose 12th-placed team are eight points away from the play-offs with seven games remaining.

“He’s come on loan to us from Cambridge United and he has been a credit to his club and himself in the way he conducts himself week in, week out. I’m sure he’s got a good future in
the game.

“I was really pleased with the performance against Haringey. I thought we were at it right from the start.

“Borough are flying, so it’s a good result for us. I said to the boys before the game we’ve got eight games left and we’ve got to believe we can win all
of them.”

Smith did have one piece of bad news for Blues fans, however, with Ryan Charles leaving the club.

“I would like to thank Ryan Charles, who we have parted company with,” said Smith.

“He had issues away from the club and could not commit to the training, but we wish him all the best wherever he goes.”

Stortford have also seen Hector Kyprianou get recalled by parent club Leyton Orient, but centre-back Shadrach Ogie has joined on loan from the O’s.

This Saturday sees the Blues travel to 15th-placed AFC Hornchurch.
