In 1979 Whymark moved to play for Vancouver Whitecaps of the North American Soccer League, and during his two seasons in Canada he scored 25 goals for the Whitecaps in 57 games.[4] Trevor scored both goals, including the game winner in the 60th minute of Vancouver's 2-1 Soccer Bowl victory over the Tampa Bay Rowdies in 1979.

After that he had Football League spells with Grimsby Town, Southend United, Peterborough United and Colchester United.[1]
