Mark Bunn was a junior team goalkeeper with Tottenham before being released to join Northampton Town in 2000.
Bunn was in the Cobblers youth set up to start with, but soon progressed to the first team, playing over 100 times. His form was impressive and interest was soon coming from Nottingham Forest and Derby County, but he signed for Blackburn Rovers, where he vied for the goalkeeper's gloves with another ex-Spurs stopper - Paul Robinson. Mark was farmed out on loan a couple of times at Leicester City and Sheffield United, but returned to Ewood Park to cover for the injured Robinson.
A 2012 move took him to
Carrow Road, where he kept first choice John Ruddy out
of the team for a while, including a last minute penalty
save to knock Spurs out of the League Cup. At the
end of his contract, he was a free agent and signed for
Aston Villa, playing well when called upon, in the
club's relegation season.
