Steve White

Stephen (Steve) James WHITE

Honest and dependable goalscorer Steve, played almost 650 League games for seven clubs in a twenty year, virtually injury free, career.
Starting with Bristol Rovers, Steve caught the eye of Luton manager David Pleat after scoring a brace against the Hatters and moved to Kenilworth Road for £175,000 in December 1979. Unable to displace Bob Hatton initially, Steve had to wait until the 1981/82 season before he earned a regular start when his goals helped the Town to promotion to the top flight.
Sadly, Steve was forced to move to Charlton that summer of 1982 as part of the deal that brought Paul Walsh to Luton but he put his disappointment behind him and went on to prove a credit to the game.
After finally hanging up his boots, Steve assisted Bath City and managed Chippenham Town.
