Vincent Harold White (22 October 1897 – 1972) was an English professional footballer born in Walsall, Staffordshire, who played in the Football League for Birmingham and Watford.[1] White, a defensive wing half whose strength was his tackling, joined Birmingham from Wednesbury Old Athletic in 1921.[2] He made his debut in the First Division on 8 April 1922, deputising for Percy Barton in a 2–1 defeat away at Tottenham Hotspur, and played in the next game, but lost his place once Barton was available for selection again.[3] He played non-league football before making seven appearances in the Third Division South for Watford.[1]
