“He are delighted to have Conrad join our staff,” Ainscough said. “He brings a wealth of experience as a player and his passion and energy is contagious. Our players can only benefit from working with him, especially our forwards. He was an excellent player and a top goal scorer for both club and country.”
Prior to his arrival at Stonehill, Whyte spent two years as an assistant coach at Eastern Nazarene College in Quincy, Mass., a Division III program that competes in the Commonwealth Coast Conference. He also gained experience as head coach of several premier division teams in Antigua, including West Ham FC and Empire FC.

Following college, Whyte returned to Antigua to resume his playing career.

He won the Antiguan Footballer of the Year Award in 1998 and was the Golden Boot winner from 1997-2001, averaging 21 goals per season. As a striker, Whyte holds the record for most goals in a single season (26) and career (156) in Antiguan club soccer. He has represented his country as a member of the Antigua and Barbuda National Team from 1990-2002, and also played for U13, U15, U17, U20, and U23 teams on the national level.
