"Worms" in soil of potted tree from garden centre


I recently bought an Amelanchier lamarckii tree and when I planted it up, I noticed these worms in the soil.  Only afterward did I start to worry they may be a problem.  Is anyone able to tell me what they are and if I need to do anything.

Thank you very much for your help.

    Can’t see very clearly but there’s definitely a centipede there … a friend to gardeners. 

    Great to see that the garden centre hasn’t drenched the compost with pesticides 👍
