Fulham-born, England Youth international defender who started his career as a junior at Fulham before moving to Crystal Palace in 1980.

Peter made 26 reserve team appearances for the Eagles during the 1980/81 and 1981/82 seasons and then joined Hayes early in 1982. He made 29 appearances (one as sub) there before signing for Walton & Hersham in November 1982.

Peter's next move took him to Chatham for the 1983/84 season and he was the club's 'Player of the Year' for 1984/85. In the summer of 1985 he joined Dover but then linked up with Tonbridge for the 1986/87 campaign.

Peter stayed with the Angels until November 1988 when he signed for Thanet United. The Isle of Thanet Gazette said that he was "a welcome addition to the staff" and Peter made his debut in a 4-0 defeat at Dover on 15.11.88. Work commitments then forced him to miss United's next ten games but after changing his job Peter returned to the Thanet defence for a 3-0 win over Ruislip at Hartsdown on 7.1.89. He then became a fixture in the side for the rest of the 1988/89 season. The Thanet Times said that Peter "did a good job in the heart of the defence" during a 1-1 draw at Dunstable on 14.1.89 and described him as being "outstanding" in a 2-1 win at Poole on 11.2.89. However the paper reported that Peter "had a most unhappy game" on 1.4.89 as Thanet were thrashed 8-1 at Hounslow. On 1.5.89 he became the tenth United player to be sent off during the season as Thanet lost 5-0 at Sheppey and Peter received his marching orders for dissent after only 35 minutes. He made his final appearance for United in the club's last-ever match before reverting to the name of Margate - a 3-0 defeat at Bury on 6.5.89. In total Peter played 21 times without scoring before leaving the club in the summer of 1989.

He then retired from senior football due to work commitments.

In 2002 Peter got involved with Maidstone and initially managed the club's Under-14 side which included his son Dale. Over the next few years he progressed with the players up to Under 18 level before being appointed as reserve team manager.

After four years in charge of the reserves Peter took over as Maidstone's first team manager in February 2010 following the departure of Lloyd Hume and Alan Walker. He was sacked by the Stones in October 2010.

In January 2011 Peter became manager of Whitstable but he resigned his post in October 2011. In a statement published on Whitstable's website Peter said "...the job has stopped being enjoyable, and once that happens I think it is time for both parties to move on."
