CareerEdit

IpswichEdit

Earl famously told the local media that despite his short stature he could leap very high - he was therefore nicknamed 'The Flea'. In December 1996 he made his only appearance for Ipswich Town, coming on as a substitute in a 1–1 home draw against Stoke City.

RotherhamEdit

He was leading scorer for Rotherham United F.C. during the 1996–97 season, prior to moving to Plymouth Argyle F.C. in 1997.[1]

International careerEdit

He was a member of the Saint Lucia national team from 1992 to 2004.
