Biography


Born in Hull, Peter moved to Banchory with his family at the age of 7 and came through the youth system at Aberdeen. He signed professional terms at Pittodrie in 2007 before making his Dons debut in February 2009 and representing Scotland at U19 level, qualifying to do so under the Home Nations agreement on the strength of his education in Scotland.

A knee injury and surgery in 2010 curtailed his progress with the first team before he made a full recovery and spent the first half of the 2012-13 season on loan at St Johnstone. His form at McDiarmid earned him a second chance at Aberdeen, and he established himself as a regular under new manager Derek McInnes for the next two seasons, earning a place in the PFA Team of the Year for 2013-14. Such was his rapport with the Aberdeen support, he became the subject of a campaign to push Human League hit 'Don't You Want Me' to #1 in the UK charts following the success of their own version singing "Peter Pawlett baby!". Injury once again hit Peter and kept him out of the League Cup Final in 2014. Having drifted in and out of the first team thereafter, he agreed a pre-contract in March 2017 to sign for MK Dons under manager Robbie Neilson.

His stay down in England lasted eighteen months before a move back to Scotland to follow his previous manager. On 31 January, Peter joined United until the end of the 2020-21 season, for an undisclosed fee.

Timeline


  • Date of Birth

    Peter was born on this date in Hull, England.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Born in Hull, Peter moved to Banchory with his family at the age of 7 and came through the youth system at Aberdeen. He signed professional terms at Pittodrie in 2007 before making his Dons debut in February 2009 and representing Scotland at U19 level, qualifying to do so under the Home Nations agreement on the strength of his education in Scotland.

  • An impressive first half performance was enough to give a much-changed Dundee United all three points at Tannadice against Morton.

  • An impressive first half performance was enough to give a much-changed Dundee United all three points at Tannadice against Morton.

  • Following United’s emphatic victory over Inverness CT on the opening day of the season, confidence was high among players backed by another healthy and noisy United support. After a day of fairly constant rain, the skies had cleared for the start of the second Ladbrokes Championship game of the season.

  • Last Appearance - Dundee United 1 - 1 Partick Th

    After forcing a corner inside the opening 20 seconds, the Tangerines enjoyed most of the early possession, but it was Partick who spurned a glaring opportunity in the ninth minute. After Paul Watson miscued a headed clearance, Zak Rudden had clear space to drive into the box. He squared the ball for ex United forward Brian Graham seven yards out, however Benjamin Siegrist spread himself brilliantly to make a vital save. Three minutes later, after more Partick pressure, Darren Brownlie crossed for Tam O’Ware whose close-range header might have found the net had it not been straight at Siegrist. In the 17th minute the hosts created their first clear opportunity after Liam Smith and Rakish Bingham combined down the right. The latter sent in a low ball which Lawrence Shankland swiped at before it fell to Ian Harkes whose turn and shot was deflected behind. There wasn’t long to wait for the opener however, and when it did it was a thing of beauty. Mark Reynolds, deployed at left back for the second successive game, found himself in an advanced position down the flank and his cut back was only hacked clear to the edge of the box. Waiting in the perfect position was Dillon Powers who killed the ball before firing in a vicious right foot curler into the top corner, which left goalkeeper Scott Fox rooted. Thereafter, despite both sides trying to push forward, defences stayed on top as the game reached half time with United enjoying a slender lead.
