Worsley began his career at Altrincham and spent some time on Bolton Wanderers books as an amateur before playing for Cheshire League side Manchester North End, from where he joined Leeds in August 1932. After two years of patiently waiting for Harry Duggan and Johnny Mahon to be unavailable, he was unlucky enough to make his debut in the worst defeat in United’s history as they were annihalated 8-1 at Stoke City in the second game of the 1934-35 season. He was given his second consecutive game at Blackburn Rovers, the following Saturday but then had to wait until March when he was next called upon for his third and final game at Goodison Park against Everton. Being third fiddle to Duggan and Mahon did not hold any prospects and he moved to Fulham in June 1935. He figured in their successful run to the FA Cup Semi-Finals in 1936. He struggled with a crop of injuries at Craven Cottage but still managed to score fifteen goals in one hundred and six League appearances before he retired prematurely in 1940 but did not play a League game after the 1937-38 season. He died aged sixty-nine, in Denton near Manchester, on 25th June 1971.
