Former Gloucester City and Forest Green Rovers goalkeeper breaks clean sheet record

On a night where Hereford FC became champions of the Southern League Premier, it was also a memorable night for a former Gloucestershire based goalkeeper.

The former Forest Green Rovers and Gloucester City goalkeeper Paul White has drawn plaudits for his performances for Kettering Town all season, and last night kept his 19th clean sheet of a remarkable personal campaign.

The 19th shut-out of The Poppies’ season came on the road at Gosport Borough as Kettering ran out 7-0 winners. It is the most clean sheets kept in a season by a Kettering goalkeeper since 1979.

On the same night, Hereford were crowned champions of the division as a Rob Purdie first half goal was enough to see off Biggleswade, meaning The Bulls won their third successive league title.

The 23 year-old former Irish youth international White started his career in Ireland with Cork City before moving to Forest Green, where he spent most of his time out on loan.

In two spells with Gloucester City across the 2014/15 season, White made 23 appearances for the Tigers before his release from Forest Green in February 2016.
