Mark commenced playing at the Under 12 level in 1976/77, and after 6 seasons as a Junior he entered Senior ranks. He played a total of 34 consecutive seasons, totalling 269 senior and 58 junior games.

Mark has been a stalwart of the Club on and off the field, taking on roles as Club Secetary for 5 seasons, Treasurer for 6 seasons, and also Club Delegate to the S.S.C.C.A.

Mark's passion was as a Junior Coach where he made a valuable contribution for 10 seasons, culminating in back to back flags with the Under 14's in 1988/89 and 1989/90. He also coached Under 16's, Under 14's and Under 12's at Association level, the latter winning the Mitchell Shield in 1987/88. Mark was also a member of the First XI Premiership team of 1992/93.

Everyone associated with the Club was saddened at Mark's passing in 2011 after a prolonged battle with cancer. The Club and League have named awards in Mark's honour.
