Career

Born in Darlington, County Durham, White began his career as a trainee at Middlesbrough in 1995, but his only first-team appearance came in the Anglo-Italian Cup before joining Luton Town in September 1997 for a fee of £40,000, where he made over 80 league appearances in three seasons. He had a one-month loan spell with Colchester United in December 1999 and later joined Colchester on a free transfer in July 2000.

White made 166 appearances for Colchester in four seasons, scoring four goals, and was voted player of the year in the 2003–04 season. He rejected the offer of a new contract with the U's and instead joined Leyton Orient in June 2004 on a two-year deal. However, he was allowed to leave nine months later and joined Boston United in March 2005 on a one-year contract, with Boston manager Steve Evans stating, "I'm delighted to get Alan on board. He was outstanding for Colchester United last season and is a great competitor."

At the end of his Boston contract in June 2006, White joined Notts County on a free transfer, where he was made club captain. Nine months later, he joined Peterborough United on loan for the remainder of the 2006–07 season and then was one of six players released by Notts County at the end of the season.

White joined his hometown club Darlington on 15 May 2007. By the end of the 2008–09 season, White had made 85 league and cup appearances for Darlington. Darlington entered administration in February 2008, and White was told he would be free to leave the club at the end of the season. He subsequently re-joined Luton Town on a two-year contract on 8 June 2009. He played 24 games for the club before being placed on the transfer list at Luton on 12 January 2010. Three days later he re-joined Darlington on loan for the rest of the 2009–10 season. He made 24 appearances as Darlington were relegated from The Football League, picking up just 30 points from 46 games.

On 27 August 2010, White was released by Luton. He was picked up by Stalybridge Celtic and made his debut against Alfreton Town on 2 October 2010. White made 8 league and cup appearances for Stalybridge before signing for Gateshead on a monthly contract on 18 November 2010. White made his debut for Gateshead on 20 November 2010 in a 1–1 draw with Forest Green Rovers. White scored his first goal for Gateshead on 14 December 2010 against Southport in the FA Trophy. On 8 February 2011, Gateshead announced that they had released White.

On 11 February 2011, White signed for Blyth Spartans. He made his debut on 15 February 2011 against Alfreton Town, scoring an own goal in a 2–1 defeat.
