Biography


A former St Johnstone youth, Mark made his professional debut on loan at Arbroath in 2010 before further loan spells with Stranraer and Elgin City the following season. After four years at McDiarmid Park, he moved to Queen of the South at age 19, winning the Second Division championship and the Challenge Cup during his first season.

Having made over 125 appearances during his three years with the Dumfries side, upon the expiration of his contract at Palmerston, Mark signed for United on a three-year deal in June 2015. Despite a tumultuous first season and changes in management, Mark featured regularly at the centre of defence during the 2015-16 campaign, showing himself to be a continued threat from set pieces.

Mark was one of the few players kept on after the Club’s relegation to the Championship, and established a solid defensive partnership with new signing William Edjenguélé. He continued to be a goal threat, occasionally lending his physical presence as an option up front when required. One of only four players to miss fewer than ten games throughout a busy season, he helped United lift the Challenge Cup and reach the Premiership play-offs, where they lost out to Hamilton at the final hurdle.

The following season followed a similar pattern for Mark, as he featured under both Ray McKinnon and Csaba Laszlo. Helping United to a third place finish in the Championship, Mark played in both legs of the club's Premiership Play-off semi final loss to Livingston. A few days later it was announced that he would leave the club at the end of his contract.

  • 1. Date of Birth


    Mark was born on this date in Glasgow.

    A former St Johnstone youth, Mark made his professional debut on loan at Arbroath in 2010 before further loan spells with Stranraer and Elgin City the following season. After four years at McDiarmid Park, he moved to Queen of the South at age 19, winning the Second Division championship and the Challenge Cup during his first season.

  • 3. First Non-competitive Appearance (Friendly)

    Vitesse 4 - 0 Dundee United
    Friendly

    United began their pre-season tour of the Netherlands with a visit to the ground of RKSV Driel to play old UEFA Cup foes Vitesse Arnhem. As if often the case with the first friendly of a pre-season, a makeshift eleven started the game, with Marc McCallum between the sticks and new signing Mark Durnan partnering Sean Dillon in a back four. Mario Bilate started the game as a lone striker, flanked b


  • 4. First Team Debut

    Dundee United 0 - 1 Aberdeen
    League (Premiership)

    The new season kicked off with Jackie McNamara giving debuts to Luis Zwick, Mark Durnan and Coll Donaldson with Rodney Sneijder, Darko Bodul and Simon Murray left on the bench. For Aberdeen, ex United midfielder, Willo Flood returned as captain, with David Goodwillie dropping to the bench.

    Keen to get his first touch of the ball, Luis Zwick confidently caught a deep Willo Flood corner early


  • 5. First Goal

    Hearts 3 - 2 Dundee United
    League (Premiership)

    After the good display at Inverness, when United looked set for three points only to be pegged back with an injury time equaliser, head coach Mixu Paatelainen went with the same starting eleven.

    The match got off to an incredible start as United survived a narrow escape then took the lead – all inside the first 90 seconds. Goalkeeper Michal Szromnik came out of his box to chest the ball dow


  • 6. 50th Appearance

    Ayr Utd 0 - 1 Dundee United
    League (Championship)

    There was almost an early breakthrough for United. A Blair Spittal shot was deflected for a corner and Mark Durnan almost squeezed home Scott Fraser’s delivery. At the other end a late challenge by Jamie Robson on Rab Crawford earned the United full-back a lecture from the ref and Gary Harkins was on the end of the resultant free-kick, but his volley from close range was blocked. And in the afterm


  • 7. 50th League Appearance

    St Mirren 3 - 2 Dundee United
    League (Championship)

    A game vital to United’s promotion bid could not have got off to a worse start when St Mirren took the lead within two minutes from their first attack. United failed to clear their lines from a St Mirren free-kick and Harry Davis knocked in from close range after a flick on by John Sutton. St Mirren looked the hungrier through most of the opening stages, as United failed to get a grip on th


  • 8. 100th Appearance

    Dunfermline 0 - 0 Dundee United
    League (Championship)

    United recovered to some extent from the 6-1 drubbing by Falkirk by holding third place Dunfermline Athletic to a 0-0 draw in a largely uneventful game at East End Park, although the draw did see United fall eight points behind St Mirren in the Championship table. It was a game which was high in endeavour but low in quality.

    United made three changes from the team who performed so abysmally


  • 9. Last Goal

    Dundee United 2 - 3 QOS
    League (Championship)

    United suffered another disappointing result in the Championship as they took on Queen of the South for the second time in seven days. Having had a victory against the same opponents in Dumfries the previous week, hopes were high of a repeat performance against opponents who were still missing the talismanic figure of Stephen Dobbie. However, despite a promising start, United were left to suffer y


  • 10. Last Appearance

    Livingston 1 - 1 Dundee United
    League (Premiership Playoff Semi Final 2nd Leg)

    United’s season ended in disappointment as a 1-1 draw at the Tony Macaroni Arena was insufficient to overturn the first leg deficit to Livingston. The aggregate defeat consigned United to a third year in the Scottish Championship, and on balance the side from West Lothian fully deserved to go through to the next round to take on Partick Thistle.

    Two changes were made by Csaba Laszlo to the
