Career[edit]

Born in Lymm, Cheshire, Worley was signed by Chelsea from Stockport County in the summer of 2005, with Chelsea beating many clubs to his signature. A tribunal set an initial transfer fee of £150,000 with further payments depending upon progress. He turned professional in November 2005 and in his first season made the most appearances at youth level.

He joined Doncaster Rovers on loan in March 2007, making his debut in a vital 1–0 win at Nottingham Forest. He said at the time "I've come here to gain some experience and be part of a first team set up, I don't know what the future holds, although I still have another year on my contract at Chelsea."[1]

Worley was included in the squad for the 2007 FA Community Shield against Manchester United on 5 August 2007, at the new Wembley Stadium. He was an unused substitute as United won 3–0 on penalties.[2]

He joined Carlisle United on a one-month loan on 31 August 2007.[3] He made his debut for the Cumbrians in a 1–0 victory over Cheltenham Town, the only game he would play for Carlisle.

Worley was given a trial by Leicester City on 6 February 2008, impressing in a reserve match.[4] He then joined the club on loan until the end of the season, in the expectation of signing a signing a three-year contract the following summer.[5] Worley made his league debut in a 3–0 defeat to Sheffield United on 5 April 2008,[6] playing in the last game of the season in a 0–0 draw against Stoke City on 4 May as Leicester were relegated.[7] His permanent move to Leicester became official on 5 May 2008.[8]

On 18 September 2008, Worley joined Luton Town on loan for a month,[9] making his debut in a 1–0 defeat to Rotherham on 20 September.[10] The club managed to extend his loan for another month in October.[11] He made a total of eight league appearances while Luton remained bottom of League Two.

On 14 August 2009, Worley again moved on loan, this time joining Crewe Alexandra until January 2010;[12] after the signing, Crewe manager Gudjon Thordarson said he had wanted to make it a permanent deal but had to settle for a loan deal.[13] On 29 September 2009, Worley scored his first career league goal against Bury at Gresty Road.[14]

On 14 July 2010, Worley parted company with Leicester by mutual consent, having failed to make more than a handful of first-team appearances during his two-year stint at the East Midlands club.[15] He joined Oxford United on 22 July on a three-year deal after appearing on trial in two pre-season games against Scottish opposition.[16] His first goal for United turned out to be the winner in a 2–1 away win against Port Vale at Vale Park on 12 March 2011.[17]

In June 2013 Worley joined Newport County.[18] Worley made his debut for Newport County in the opening League Two match of the 2013–14 season on 3 August 2013 versus Accrington Stanley. Worley scored the opening goal after 24 minutes in the 4–1 win, the first goal for Newport County since their return to the Football League after a 25-year absence. He was released by Newport County in May 2014 at the end of the 2013-14 season.
