Career History
Mark started his career as a trainee at Tottenham Hotspur. Failing to make an impact at Spurs, he spent a short loan period at Brentford and scored one goal in two appearances.

Released by Tottenham in September 1997, he joined the Daggers and impressed enough in the reserve side to get his chance in the first team. He made his debut in an Essex Senior Cup match at Hornchurch in the November. This performance impressed manager Ted Hardy enough for him to gain a regular first team place and he has become one of the crowd favourites since.

At the start of the 2000/01 season, Mark spent two months on loan to Braintree Town as he recovered from a hamstring injury.

In December 2000, Mark made the national headlines for scoring the late winner for the Daggers in the FA Cup 2nd round match against Lincoln City at Sincil Bank, and has never lived down his subsequent MotD interview. Mark also supplied the cross for The Daggers' goal at The Valley against Charlton Athletic in the 3rd Round, as well as scoring the Daggers' third goal in the Exeter City replay the following season.

In 2002/03 he again scored a vital FA Cup goal, the winner at Crawley to get the Daggers in the FA Cup 3rd round once more. He then laid on the perfect cross for the second Daggers goal against Plymouth Argyle in a televised replay, described as "Beckham'esque" by Mark Lawrenson on MotD.

Mark is a player who can turn a game and has given a succession of full backs nightmares over his time with The Daggers, but who frustrates as he scores many fewer goals than he should given the positions he gets into.
