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 - 0 Partick Th

    The game started badly for Pawlett who was subbed off in the opening minutes of the game and replaced by Appéré after pulling his ham string. United’s first chance of the game fell on the 10th minute as McMullan played the ball to Appéré who attempted to cross the ball low to Shankland. However, the Jags dealt with this passage of play well and attempted a counter attack which came to no avail. Seven minutes later McMullan was one on one with Partick’s keeper after Bannigan gave the ball away in his own half. McMullan still had some running to do but from the center of the box he aimed his shot low for it to be smothered by Fox. After United cleared a Thistle corner on the 22nd minute, Penrice played the ball to Dario Zanatta in the center of the box who volleyed the ball high for it to be saved comfortably by Siegrist in the center of the goal. With ten minutes of the half to go, Miller had the ball in the net for Thistle after a save from Siegrist but the linesman had his flag up quickly much to the dismay of the away fans. Just a minute later, Appéré had a chance to cross the ball but he drilled it towards goal forcing Fox to parry the ball into the Eddie Thompson Stand for a United corner. A largely uneventful first half came to a close after Liam Smith crossed the ball to McMullan who headed the ball into the arms of Fox.
