Worrell was new Plymouth Argyle manager Paul Sturrock's first signing, arriving from Dundee United in November 2000 initially on loan.

His consistent performances at right back ensured a permanent deal but his season was then cruelly cut short when he suffered a broken ankle playing against Barnet in March.

A former Republic of Ireland Under-21 international, he looked comfortable on the ball and produced some good link-up play with the midfield.
