Tom White




Date of birth





The 23-year-old joined Rovers from National League side Gateshead on a two-year deal in the summer of 2019.

White started his career in the same boys club as Adam Armstrong, before completing his scholarship with Carlisle United.

He then joined Gateshead at the age of 18, before gaining first team experience on loan at the likes of Spennymoor, West Aukland, Ashington and Scarborough, where he won promotion to the Evo-Stik Premier in 2018.

A combative and ball-playing midfielder, White made over 40 appearances for Gateshead last season and gained international honours with England C - earning caps against Wales and Estonia.

After spending a large chunk of the 2019-20 campaign at Barrow on a temporary deal and helping the Bluebirds to promotion from the National League, White linked up with Ian Evatt for the second time in his career by joining Bolton Wanderers on loan for the 2020-21 season.

However, after featuring 14 times for the League Two side, White returned to Rovers in January 2021.
