Jamaica's football history
Reggae Boyz Forum
'I just feel good man,' was Whitmore's words after Jamaica qualified for the World Cup finals in France.
Theodore Whitmore practiced his craft at the Montego Bay Boys Club before representing Violet Kickers and then Seba United in Jamaica's National Premiere League.
An integral member of Jamaica's World Cup qualifying team, Whitmore scored the two goals that defeated Japan at the World Cup finals in France. On his return to Jamaica, his fellow Montegonians affectionately dubbed him 'The King of Mobay.' In that same year he helped Jamaica win the Caribbean Football Championship in Trinidad & Tobago. Whitmore was fittingly named the 'Caribbean Footballer of the Year.'
In 1999 he received a free transfer to Hull City of the English 3rd Division. He promptly scored on his club debut.
Theo can best be described as being quiet, shy even, but blessed with the lethal ability to break down any defense. Playing the role of 'midfield general,' 'Tappa' is a delight to watch as he mesmerizes the opposition with his deft and crafty moves. With Jamaica's sight set on yet another World Cup berth, Whitmore, the 'King of Montego Bay', will no doubt be called upon once again to lead Jamaica's midfield attack.
Whitmore was a passener in the car that blew a tire, overturned and resulted in the tragic death of popular Reggae Boyz teammate and defender, Stephen 'Shorty' Malcolm.
