The right-arm medium-pace bowler reached the milestone moment in his career during last week’s seven-wicket Hampshire League County Division 3 South victory over Woodgreen at Westhill, where White, now 52, began playing as a 13-year old.
A stalwart Shanklin cricketer for close on 40 years, White has also got a batting target in view.
“I need about 250 runs to complete an aggregate 20,000 for Shanklin,” he confirmed.
White, who boasts former Hampshire & England legend Robin Smith as his most notable scalp, says that Shanklin’s decision to join the Hampshire League four years ago has prolonged his career.
“I’m enjoying it as much as ever and hope to continue playing so I can play in the same Shanklin league side as my two sons,” he says.
His remarkable loyalty to Shanklin sport also includes 600-plus appearances for the town’s Island League soccer team, besides short spells at Cowes Sports and West Wight.
