Mark began his career at Charlton Athletic, graduating from their youth team in 2005. Mark would enjoy a loan spell with MK Dons before signing for Ebbsfleet United in the Conference National in 2006.
After 94 appearances at Stonebridge Road, including winning the FA Trophy with Ebbsfleet at Wembley, the midfielder would join Woking in the Summer of 2009.
