Jamie Andrew White (born 17 November 1989) is an English professional footballer, currently playing for Sutton United.

Playing career[edit]

Born in Southampton, White attended Woodlands Community College, having joined the Southampton F.C. Academy as an eight-year old. He began to play regularly for the Club's youth setup in 2005 after a brief spell at Chelsea.

White featured in the FA Youth Cup semi-final in 2005–06, as well as the Academy League play-offs where he scored the opener after coming off the bench against Blackburn Rovers in the semi-final to set Saints on their way to the Championship.

He was the winner of the 2006–07 Academy Player of the Year award, but had to accept his prize on crutches, after suffering a cruciate injury whilst training with the first team in March 2007. Despite his injury, White was still able to claim that season's top scorer prize for the Under 18s side and made a full recovery in 2007–08.

Following a strong pre-season, White was named on the bench for the League Cup tie against Exeter City, and went on to make his first team debut against Derby County on 23 August 2008.[1]

On 14 November 2008, he joined Shrewsbury Town on loan for a month,[2] later extended for a second month. It was while at Shrewsbury, White scored his first senior goal in the 2–1 home win against Dagenham & Redbridge.[3]

Unfortunately, after returning from his loan spell, White broke his leg and dislocated his ankle as the result of a mistimed tackle in a reserve game against Aldershot Town.

White joined non-league side Eastleigh on 9 October 2009 on a month long loan deal from Southampton. He was released by Southampton on 15 May 2010 and signed for Eastleigh on 21 December 2010 on a non-contract basis.[4]

In January 2011, he signed a short term contract with local club Totton & Eling.[5]

Later on in 2011, White signed for Queensland State League side Whitsunday Miners.[6] He played 36 matches and scored 9 goals.

For the 2011–2012 season he signed with Wessex Premier side Winchester City, he ended up one goal short of equalling the record number of goals in the Wessex League in a season as Winchester won the division.

Salisbury City[edit]

Following his successful season with Winchester City where he netted 51 goals in 32 league appearances, he moved to Salisbury City, who at the time were playing 3 leagues above Winchester City. Salisbury had been trying to sign Jamie for about 5 or 6 months before they eventually got hold of him. The big difference between leagues didn't seem to prevent Jamie from playing at his best as he featured in almost all of Salisbury's league matches, and scored 26 goals for them in the league. This included a spectacular volley in Salisbury's play-off final victory against Dover Athletic from just outside the box. He jointly won the golden boot for that season. Jamie later signed a 2-year contract with Salisbury, keeping him with the club until the end of the 2014–15 season. In the pre-season period before the 2013–14 campaign, Jamie only appeared in one of the fixtures as he required an operation on a hernia. This meant that he would be out for about 6 weeks and would miss the start of the new season. It took longer than expected to get back to match fitness for Jamie, but he eventually made a couple of appearances as a substitute. Unfortunately, Jamie became injured again and so had to take further time out. Despite an injury plagued season, Jamie still managed to score 11 goals in the 2013–14 campaign, including 5 goals in the last 5 games of the season.

Bristol Rovers[edit]

On 6 June 2014, White signed for recently relegated Conference Premier side Bristol Rovers after becoming a free agent the evening before.[7] However, just five months later, White had his contract terminated by mutual consent in order to join Conference South side Sutton United.[8] During his time with Rovers, White made just 11 league appearances and failed to score once.

Sutton United[edit]

White scored within 14 minutes of his Sutton debut, putting his side 1-0 up away to local rivals Bromley. However, United eventually lost the match 2-1.
