Headers in each half from Steve Metcalf and Ryan McBride put Rebels ahead, before County League Division 1 side Redhill, managed by ex-Worthing boss Simon Colbran, pulled a late goal back through Clinton Moore’s deflected effort.
Rebels boss Chris White featured 25 players during the 90 minutes, again including a number of triallists combined with new signings and a number of last season’s squad.
Worthing had overcome Division 2 side East Preston the previous evening with a 6-4 victory as Graham Martin, Charlie Farmer, McBride, Jamie Brotherton, Metcalf and Spencer Slaughter got the goals.
The next match in their pre-season schedule sees them host newly-relegated Ryman League Premier side Lewes at Woodside Road on Saturday. Kick-off is 3pm.
