Tris Whitman

Tris born 09/061980 in Nottingham started his plying career at the age of 11 at grassroots level for Sandiacre Town FC. However it wasn’t until the age of 17 until Tris started to make his name in football.


After joining Arnold Town’s youth team, Tris had spells in the reserves before earning his first team call up. From there Tris went on to score 55 goals in 77 matches which helped catch the eye of then Non-league Doncaster Rovers FC. After sealing a £10,000 transfer Tris helped Doncaster secure promotion to league two in 2003.


His performances during the playoffs earned Tris an England C call up, where he went on to win the Four nations trophy. After leaving Doncaster Tris went on to have spells at Dagenham, Crawley, Tamworth and Scarborough, where he was part of a team that played against Chelsea in the fifth round of the FA Cup. Tris now plays veterans football for Basford United and in 2018 Tris was selected to represent England seniors in the World Cup held in Thailand, in which England went on to win.


Alongside playing, Tris is a really enthusiastic coach, who currently coaches Notts County under 16s as well as running 1:1 and team sessions for Canoville Coaching.


Tris has been coaching for over 8 years now, where he uses his knowledge and experience from playing to help develop young aspiring players. 

Tris commented:


"I have a keen passion for coaching and enjoy helping players develop their skills and techniques. I have particularly enjoyed working on 1:1 sessions which enables me to structure tailored sessions specific to each individuals ability and playing position."
