Tuesday, June 8, 1965

Worrell Sterling was born in Bethnal Green.

A disciplined understudy to his more exalted contemporaries Nigel Callaghan and John Barnes, Sterling nonetheless clocked up more than 120 outings for the club over a five-year period.

His Vicarage Road career stalled however, and he failed to make an appearance for the club following the arrival of Neil Redfearn. Within a few months he joined Peterborough United and subsequently played for Bristol Rovers and Lincoln City.

No-one forces you to read these. If one person finds them interesting, I would imagine that's one more than the number of people in the world that don't think you're a dick.
