Player Profile

Wolverhampton-born Worrall played four games and scored three goals in the Foxes final Midland League campaign after impressing, and scoring, in a trial game. He'd started his career with Goldthorne Villa, Wolves and Burton Swifts before making the switch to Fosse.

He'd made a bright enough start to his Fosse career but injury, and then a suspension by the club for poor conduct, saw his time cut short and he moved on to Arsenal, although his stint there didn't even last a year.

A spell in the Lancashire League followed for the next five seasons before Worrall played Second Division football for Barnsley, although he failed to get on the scoresheet. He went on for a spell in the Irish League with Distillery and then finished his career with Kettering.
