Mark made a handful of appearances for Hamlet during the remainder of 2002/03 and scored in a 3-2 home win over Leatherhead on 21.12.02. He stayed with Dulwich for the start of the 2003/04 season but after making just three appearances Mark moved on to Carshalton of the Premier Division in November 2003.

He played eight times for the Robins in all competitions before leaving the club in February 2004 to work in the USA.

In August 2005 he had a trial with Barnet and played for their reserves before being released.

He was released shortly afterwards and joined Redhill on a permanent basis.
