It cannot be said
that Peter had an impressive career as a footballer. In the five
years that he was with Norwich, he made just four appearances, three
of which were as substitute. As with many players, his debut was
from the bench in a league match against Chelsea in February 1982.
Unlike many others, he did not progress and his only full match
was a 3-0 defeat against Brighton. He totaled just 177 minutes of
first team action for the Canaries, with only 99 of them coming
in the top flight. A free transfer from Carrow Road took Peter to
Charlton in September 1983 for whom he played eleven matches, scoring
once and receiving a red card against Grimsby. He moved across London
to Brisbane Road in May 1985 and played 33 times for Orient, scoring
twice. In July 1987, he joined non-league Fisher Athletic.
