He left Diss in 68/69 Trevor returned to finish his playing career at Diss, joining them in Janauary 1986 from Colchester, he acted as a player coach till leaving Diss for the final time in December 1986

    Great to see page dedicated to 'cousin Trev'...very strange to look at him and looks like young version my father and the resemblance still there with the years gone by - may only be a distant relative but it's the only place I could have got my footballing talents from :)

  • Trevor coached the Norwich City Under 10 team for 3 years then moved to Ipswich to coach the Under 12 team. January 2009 saw him working at the University Campus Suffolk (Lowestoft) where he would be running a Football Development and Coaching Foundation Degree from September 2009

  • In the club`s youth team records for 67-68 and 68-69 Trevor Whymark is frequently referred to as `S Whymark` although his initials are `TJ`. We have credited all of those appearances to Trevor as we don`t believe there was an `S Whymark` at Portman Road at the same.

  • Trevor played for Vancouver Whitecaps in the old NASL in 2 seasons 79 & 80. His record in 79 was Played 27 Goals 10 in 1980 was Played 30, Goals 15. He won the 1979 Soccer Bowl with the Whitecaps Sept 8th 79 v Tampa Bay Rowdies at NY Giants Stadium in East Rutherford New Jersey in front of a crowd of 64065, scoring both goals in a 2-1 victory for Vancouver.

    Both Myself, and my identical twin brother`s first game was when town beat WBA 7-1, and Whymark scored a hat-trick. We now both run pubs in Norwich, and I recited to him the story of how Trevor Whymark visited my pub, to deliver a fridge, and how I`d told him of the first game I`d seen him in! funny thing was that, trevor had visited my brothers pub only a week before with a tumble-dryer, and had the same conversation!! I wondered why he`d looked at me gone out

  • I am related to him and he has the same hair as me and looks exactly like me. And he also kicks the ball exactly as i do. It is just FREAAAKKKYYY!!!!!!!!!
