Westwood began his career at Wolverhampton Wanderers, where he scored once against Portsmouth.
Westwood moved to Reading in 1998 but. First team chances at both clubs were limited and in his one season with the Berkshire club he didn’t make a senior league appearance.

Westwood was named in the PFA Division Three team of the year for the 2002–03 season, as Hartlepool won promotion to Division Two. Over the course of six seasons at Victoria Park, Westwood made 294 appearances in all competitions, scoring nine goals.
He left Hartlepool at the end of the 2004–05 season after rejecting the offer of a new contract, instead opting to join Walsall on 1 July 2005. Westwood’s final appearance for Hartlepool was the 2004–05 Football League One play-off final. It did not end well for Westwood as he was sent off as his side went on to lose 4–2 to Sheffield Wednesday. Westwood helped Walsall to promotion in the 2006–07 season, and was named in the PFA League Two Team of the Year.
Westwood was signed by Peterborough United from Walsall (along with Dean Keates) on a three-year deal on 14 May 2007, and aided in the team’s back-to-back promotions to League One and the Championship.
On 6 January 2009, Westwood moved on an initial one-month loan to Cheltenham Town, which was later extended for a further month. Following Peterborough’s promotion to the Championship, Westwood was placed on the transfer list.
On 9 July 2009, Westwood signed a two-year contract with League One side Wycombe Wanderers after his contract with Peterborough was cancelled.
Westwood left Wycombe in June 2011 after rejecting their offer of a new contract and signed for Wrexham (where he teamed up again with Dean Keates) on a two-year deal. Westwood scored his first goal for Wrexham in a 2–2 draw against Grimsby Town. In March 2013 Westwood made his first appearance at Wembley Stadium in the FA Trophy Final which he won with Wrexham, beating Grimsby Town on penalties after the match ended 1–1, Westwood successfully converted a penalty in the shoot out.

Born in Walsall, West Midlands, Hawley started his career for his hometown team Walsall but only played one league game. While at the Bescot Stadium he also spent loan spells at Raith Rovers and Hereford United, where he scored once against Burton Albion.
After his release by Walsall in 2004, Hawley joined Southern Football League side Hednesford Town, but only made one start for the Pitmen, playing in a league game against Hinckley United. He was again released towards the end of the 2003–04 season. Hawley joined Conference team Carlisle United in the summer of 2004 and played a part in their return to the Football League. He was the League Two top scorer in the 2005–06 season, forming a successful partnership with Michael Bridges as Carlisle achieved a second successive promotion to League One. Hawley was voted League Two Fans’ Player of the Year and was part of the League Two Team of the Year. In May 2007, Hawley was offered an improved contract by Carlisle manager Neil McDonald, but Hawley rejected the offer and left the club on 11 May 2007. In three seasons for Carlisle United he was the club’s top scorer.
He signed for Championship side Preston North End on 14 June 2007, on a three-year contract. After making 26 appearance and 3 goals in League and 2 in FA Cup at his first season for Preston, Hawley suffered poor forms for Preston in his second season and got less playing time under manager Alan Irvine. Also during his time at Preston, Hawley also struggled to replicate the goal scoring form he showed at Carlisle and joined Northampton Town for a one months loan where he made 11 appearance and scoring two. Afterwards, Hawley returned to the club despite Northampton Town was keen to extend his contract. Afterwards his loan finish with Northampton, Hawley returns to Preston and as made just five substitute appearances in the League and 2 starts in League Cup and eventually Hawley join Colchester United on month loan deal along with Neal Trotman and made 4 appearance.
He signed for League Two side Notts County on 3 August 2009, on a three-year contract for an undisclosed fee to revive his career. In his first season for Preston, Hawley made total of 38 appearance(31 in League, 6 in FA Cup, 1 in League Cup and 1 in Football League Trophy) and scoring 4 (3 in league and 1 in FA Cup). Under manager of Cotterill, Short, Paul Ince and Martin Allen, Hawley fell out with favour due to that he has struggled to make an impact for Notts County and his poor performance struck again. In May 2012 he was released by Notts County, along with 12 other players.
On 31 January 2012 Hawley signed, on loan until the end of season, for Crawley Town. However, Hawley made four appearance and return to Notts County, with another disappointing loan spell.
Having been released, Hawley went on a trial at Doncaster Rovers. On 7 September 2012, he signed a short term deal with League 1 side Scunthorpe United. At Scunthorpe United, Hawley made an impressive display at the club, with five goals in seventeen appearance. In January, Hawley signed a new contract, with the club until the end of the season as his old deal expires in January.
On July 1 2013 Hawley signed a two-year deal with Torquay United scoring 3 goals in 30 appearances. However on 29th August 2014 Karl and the club agreed to terminate his contract by mutual consent. On 5 September 2014 Hawley signed a one-year deal with Conference Premier Alfreton Town.When this contract finished Karl signed for Stourbridge
