One of the longest serving players Boro’ had during the 2000s, Simon Wormull was signed by Paul Fairclough in 2001 from Rushden & Diamonds. Well, he won’t quite stand up if you compare him to the lads that came in at the back end of the decade. But Worms did see three other managers apart from Cloughie during his time with the club. And that’s no mean feat. Right?
In a Boro’ shirt, Wormull’s passing and dead ball ability were always of a high quality. But he couldn’t match his achievements at Rushden; a team with whom he won a Conference title. The closest you could say he came during his stay at Broadhall Way was the 2002 FA Trophy Final. But we didn’t win that. And, two years later, the midfielder had fallen out of favour at the club following the arrival of Graham Westley. That meant his departure became somewhat inevitable.
Simon Wormull: After Boro’
Having been tried out in various roles by Westley, most notably in the centre of midfield, Wormull was most at home on the right. He never managed to secure a stranglehold on the position, however, and fell short of bringing up a ton of Boro’ starts. After leaving us, there was a short-term deal at Hornchurch and then it was onto Crawley Town. He was with the Red Devils for two years, followed by stints at Lewes and Eastbourne Borough among others.
