Mark McGuinness

A man mountain of a central defender, 2018/19 proved to be a breakthrough year for Mark as he nailed down a starting berth in our under-18s side.

Standing at 6ft 3in, he provided a dominant physical presence at the heart of our defence, in addition to kickstarting attacking moves as our deepest outfield player. Mark made 17 appearances in the Premier League south last season, keeping seven clean sheets and scoring three goals, all of which came from corners.

The Republic of Ireland youth international has been at the club since he was 10 years old.
