Place of birthDumfries
NationalityScottish
Weight86 kg
Height1.85 m
PositionDefender/Centre back

A former Scotland Under-21 international, after missing all of the 1999-2000 campaign with a serious ankle injury, Peter made a successful return to action with Grimsby Town in September 2000.

He showed he had lost none of his class but struggled to retain his place following the arrival of Zhang Enhua and it was only when the Chinese international departed that he was able to resume as a first choice in the Mariners' line-up.

Peter is a formidable central defender who brings the ball out of defence with confidence and shows excellent distribution.
