Harry Worley (born 25 November 1988 in Warrington, Cheshire, England) is a centre-back who formerly played for Chelsea's Academy team.


Pre-Chelsea career

Harry joined Chelsea as a first-year scholar from Stockport County for a compensation figure of £150,000.

Chelsea career

A tall centre-back with impressive aerial ability but no little technical prowess, Harry quickly established himself as a first choice in the Under-18 team. His debut season featured a smattering of goals, most notably a sensational strike away to Norwich City 1-2 Chelsea (2005-06 FA Youth Cup)Norwich in the FA Youth Cup]].

A continued impressive development led to progress into the Reserve team and a loan spell at Doncaster, but his performances were hit and miss, with many fans blaming him for poor defensive mistakes. A place on the first team substitutes bench arrived in August 2007 for the 2007 Community Shield. Harry, wearing the number 39 shirt, was set to receive his debut as an injury time replacement but the full time whistle went with him standing on the sideline. He was never to make a senior outing.

Instead, he went on a month-long loan to Carlisle but struggled to make an impression. Midway through the 2007-08 season Harry joined Leicester on trial before sealing a loan move until the end of the season. At the end of the loan move, he made the move permanent.


Harry has not represented England at any level.
