Born Lancaster, Lancashire,[1] Haworth progressed through the Blackburn Rovers youth system and he made his debut for the Academy in the 2004–05 season. His first start for the reserve team came in April 2007 and he scored a goal against Manchester United. However, his appearances during the 2007–08 season were limited due to injuries. He signed a professional contract in the summer of 2008.[2] He made his first team debut for Blackburn after starting in a 2–1 victory at Sunderland in the League Cup on 12 November 2008, being substituted for Roque Santa Cruz on 62 minutes.[3] His next appearance came against Sunderland in the FA Cup fourth round, coming on as a substitute on 56 minutes in a 0–0 draw on 24 January 2009.[4] He finished the 2008–09 season with two appearances.[5]

He joined Conference National team Gateshead on a month's loan on 13 November,[6] making his debut the next day as a substitute in a 5–3 defeat at Stevenage Borough.[7] He finished the loan with six appearances.[5] He signed a new contract to keep him at Blackburn until June 2011 and he subsequently joined League Two team Rochdale on loan for the remainder of the 2009–10 season on 21 January 2010.[8] He made his debut in a 4–1 victory at Cheltenham Town.[9] He finished the loan with seven appearances as Rochdale won promotion to League One.[5] He went on trial with Conference team York City in June with a view to signing on loan for the 2010–11 season.[10] However, he signed for League Two team Bury on a two-year contract on a free transfer on 6 July.[11]

On 12 January 2012 he joined Bradford City on a one month loan deal lasting until 14 February 2012.[12] He made his debut two days later in a 2–2 draw against Morecambe at Valley Parade.[13] He started the following game playing the full 90 minutes in what was a 1–1 draw at home to Burton Albion.[14] The loan deal expired after a 1–1 draw with Port Vale however it was extended by a further two months until 14 April.[15] His made his first appearance after extending his loan deal as he came off the bench in the 86th minute to replace Craig Fagan during a 1–0 loss away to Dagenham & Redbridge.[16] On 16 April 2012, Haworth loan spell at Bradford City had ended[17] In May 2012, Haworth was released by Bury after being deemed surplus to requirements.[18]

Shortly after leaving Bury, he soon move to Scotland by signing for Falkirk in the first division on a free transfer, with a two-year deal.[19] Despite a good start in friendlies having scored twice, he failed to score later on in his Falkirk career, having been described as ‘make the difference-type player’ by manager Steven Pressley.On 30 November 2012, Haworth left Falkirk by mutual consent having failed to settle in Scotland.[20] Upon a move to Notts County, Haworth stated his move to Falkirk was a "big mistake".[21]

After his release from Falkirk, Haworth signed for League Two side Rochdale on 24 January after spending two months as a free agent, making newly manager Keith Hill his first signing.[22] He made his debut, the next day, coming on as a substitute for Ashley Grimes in late minutes, as Rochdale settle a draw with Cheltenham Town. However, later in the season, Haworth has his playing time reduce, having spent time on bench or left out the squad selection and at the end of the season, he was released by the club, alongside with seven other players.[23]

Haworth signed an initial 6-month deal with Notts County on 1 July 2013.[24] After the move, Haworth says joining Notts County made him glad.[21]

Style of play

Haworth plays a winger who primarily operates on the right but can also play on the left. He is an "effective dribbler who can use his pace and trickery to beat players in the final third" and has been described as "pacey and tricky".[2]
