Vics have boosted our attacking options ahead of the trip to Burscough in the Evo-Stik Premier Division, with the signing of 26-year-old wide midfielder Mark Peers.
Peers switched from Chester FC last night (Thursday) and is likely to go straight into the squad which travels to Victoria Park tomorrow.
- Mark Peers in action for Fleetwood Town during the 2008/09 season in which The Fishermen earned promotion from the Blue Square North -
Born in St Helens, Mark started his career at Liverpool aged just 17. He left two years later to join Raith Rovers, where he scored on his debut. But it was to be his only goal, as he moved back to the North West after five appearances north of the border to play for Vauxhall Motors.
Mark spent a couple of months with The Motormen, before switching to Prescot Cables in the 2004/05 campaign. He remained at Rivacre Road until February 2005, where he stayed for a season before moving to our Wincham neighbours Witton Albion in 2006.
There Mark made over a century of appearances and scored 17 goals in his second of three seasons at Wincham Park, before being signed by Fleetwood Town on June 17 2008.
In February 2009 he moved again, this time to Vics' Premier Division promotion rivals FC Halifax Town, where he scored four times in 40 appearances for The Shaymen in their Division One North promotion winning side.
This summer he joined the newly formed Chester FC on trial and scored a spectacular goal in a friendly win against Aberystwyth Town - their first friendly at the Deva Stadium - before signing contract terms soon after.
Mark can play on either flank, has bundles of pace and can score freely from wide positions. He may make his debut for Vics as early as tomorrow (Saturday).
