Ironically when the redundancy came from Dundee he was actually playing for St. Johnstone on loan having had a previous loan period with them in the 2002/03 season. They took over his contract but a longer deal looked out of the question.
But Mark is now back in England after signing for Stockport in a deal that is initially to the end of the season but with an option for a further year. They are currently in Division Two’s bottom four and look as though they could finally return to the 3rd Division, the result of what Carlton Palmer described as a successful spell as manager.
New boss Sammy McIlroy will be hoping that he can help turn things round and the player himself said: "After speaking to the manager and the chairman it was an easy decision to join Stockport County".
