He joined Doncaster Rovers on a month loan on 6 March 2007, making his debut in a vital 1–0 win at Nottingham Forest.[5] 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."[6] After extending his loan spell until the end of the season[citation needed], Worley went on to make ten appearance for the club.
