White featured in an England trial match while with Brentford in 1919 before Arsenal secured his services later that year.

It was not long before a league debut arrived as White started in a 1-0 defeat at Newcastle on the opening day of the 1919/20 season. 

And White was an ever-present in his first three campaigns for Arsenal, scoring 39 goals in 90 league appearances over that period.  

He was a force up front in all competitions during his time in north London, finding the net on a regular basis in friendly fixtures too.

White earned London FA Challenge Cup honours in 1921/22, won the Southend Hospital Cup twice in succession and completed a 1920/21 'double' with the Metropolitan Hospital Cup. 

Eventually going on to make 109 starts for Arsenal, White played his final match for the Club in a 1-0 defeat to Everton in November 1922, before moving to Blackpool in March 1923.
