Career History
Starting his career as a centre-forward for Woking, Mark moved to Stevenage Borough in 1992. On his debut for Boro, he scored an impressive four goals.

Whilst at Broadhall Way, he switched to the centre-back position and became one of the Boro supporter's favourites. He has won a number of England caps at semi-pro level and was named player of the season for Stevenage in the 2000/01 season.

Unable to agree terms with Boro for the following season, Mark joined the Daggers on a free transfer in time for the start of the 2001/02 campaign where, given the injuries to Matthews and Cole, he proved invaluable. A no-nonsense defender who just does his stuff week in and week out, Mark has become a firm favourite at Victoria Road although he became something of a backup following the return to fitness of Lee Matthews and Tim Cole.

Mark has signed a new one year deal with the Daggers for 2003/-04.
