Always considered a player of immense talent who never quite reached his potential, Mark was signed from Wimbledon for £1million in 1999 after disastrous spells with Liverpool and the Dons playing only a handful of first team games.

Quickly settled into the City side adding an extra dimension to the attack and contributing several spectacular early season goals.

Blessed with lightening pace and accurate crossing.

Mark joined Cardiff City in July 2008 with a one year contract.

His Bluebirds contract was extended to June 2011 in April 2010.

Mark joined Ipswich Town in July 2010 with a two-year contract.
