Attwell began his career as a junior with local Bristol sides Shirehampton and St. Vallier, before joining Everton's junior scheme. He failed to settle at Everton and returned to Bristol in March 2001, playing a couple trial games for Bristol City before signing a three-year traineeship with Tottenham Hotspur. He was released by Tottenham after failing to make the grade and had trials with Kidderminster Harriers, Bradford City, Salisbury City and Southend United before joining Bristol City in August 2001 as cover for Steve Phillips and Mike Stowell
He failed to make the first team with City and joined Tiverton Town on loan in March 2002, before being released by City at the end of the season.
In July 2002, Atwell was on trial at Tranmere Rovers, but moved to Torquay United later that month.
He made his league debut in place of the injured Kevin Dearden on August 17, 2002 in a 4-3 defeat away to York City. His next game came on October 22, 2002, a 4-0 defeat in the Football League Trophy at home to Wycombe Wanderers, followed 4 days later by a 5-1 defeat away to Scunthorpe United.
He was dropped after the Scunthorpe game, but on the 29th of October played in the 4-0 home win against Bournemouth, replacing Dearden as a substitute with the game still at 0-0. He made one further appearance for Torquay, on the 19th of November, as a half-time substitute for Arjan van Heusden in the 2-2 draw at home to Kidderminster Harriers, a game Torquay were leading 2-0 when he came on, before being released early the following week.
