PositionDefender/Right back

Probably one of John Gregory's better buys, Mark was bought from Cardiff City after some excellent displays down the right.

Fast, skillful with an eye for goal, Mark is a great asset for Villa.

He was sent off in the FA Cup Semi Final against Bolton Wanderers as a blot on his record but, more positively, has also been capped for Wales.

Mark retired in August 2007 due to a knee injury.
