Tom White

Although born in Tring, Tom White was raised in nearby Chesham and played for the local Chesham Generals club for three seasons, during which time he represented the Berks & Bucks county association.

After a spell in Essex with Grays United, the 22-year-old winger signed for the Albion in March 1904 and became first choice on the right flank during 1904-05, but the following season he was ousted by Dick Joynes and the brilliant Walter Anthony, and was released to join Stockport County in May 1906.

After appearing in 32 Second Division matches for County during 1906-07, Tom moved on to Carlisle United in the North Eastern League, but returned to the Southern League with Exeter City during the summer of 1908. The little outside-right played in the “Grecians’ first-ever match as a pro club, and made nineteen appearances in their initial season before joining his younger brother Charlie at Watford in August 1909.
