Conor was an Academy player with both Southampton and AFC Bournemouth. Upon being released by The Cherries aged 15, he joined the Eastleigh Development Scheme on a scholarship and remained at the Silverlake Stadium for three years, crossing paths with his current Totton teammates Lewis Noice and Jack Masterton.
He signed for Bashley when he was 18, and went on to strike 35 goals in 86 Wessex League games for the New Forest club before joining Sholing.
Formerly a central midfielder in the all-action mould of Steven Gerrard, the now 24-year-old has found himself being edged further forward over the years, where he’s able to make use of his abilities to hold the ball up and hit the target on a regular basis. He is able to play on either flank or as a No.10, but he prefers to operate straight down the middle as a centre-forward.
It was Whiteley who scored the home side’s equalising goal in the Southern League Cup match at Sholing in October 2021, bringing the ball down inside the penalty area and firing a firm shot into the net, before The Stags hit back to win the tie 4-1. That was one of 15 goals he netted for The Boatmen as a regular starter last term.
Upon becoming a Stag, he scored on his debut in the 5-3 home win over Westbury United, and added to that with a Bergkampesque strike late on in the 4-2 away win at Bristol Manor Farm. Conor has also featured for Totton & Eling, as a dual-registered player.
At the beginning of the 2023/24 season, Conor returned to his former club Bashley on loan.
