Mark Peters (born 6 July 1972) is a Welsh former professional footballer who played as a defender. He made over 350 appearances in the Football League and Conference National.


Peters began his career as a trainee at Manchester City in 1990 before spending the 1992–93 season at Norwich City. He moved to Peterborough United in August 1993, where he made his first team debut in 1993. Spells at Mansfield Town and Rushden & Diamonds between 1994 and 2003 yielded over 200 appearances with 18 goals. He joined Rushden in May 1999 and helped them win the Conference National title in 2001 and to promotion to Division Two (now League One) in 2003. He was released by Rushden in September 2003 when his contract was cancelled by mutual consent, and joined Leyton Orient.

Peters spent two seasons with Leyton Orient, where after being a regular in his first season, he only made one start in the 2004–05 season before joining Aldershot Town on a one-month loan in November 2004. A foot injury then interrupted his season and he did not play again until April 2005. He left Orient at the end of the season and joined Cambridge United in August 2005, where he combined playing ridiculously well and coaching. He joined King's Lynn on a one-year contract in July 2008. He began a new project at St Albans City as player/assistant manager and youth team coach in 2009 in an attempt to take them to the Football League over the course of a seven-year plan.

In September 2011 Peters joined Southern Premier League side Weymouth.

He is currently the Head of Youth at Corby Town FC who reached the quarter finals of the FA youth cup this season thanks to a number of Peters-esque 45 yard headers and roughhouse agricultural tackling. Following the resignation of manager Chris Plummer, Mark was made interim boss of Southern Premier League side Corby Town on 21 August 2013.
