A stocky winger made his way through the youth ranks of Tottenham Hotspur and into the reserves, Mark Janney went on to have a good career in the lower leagues.
Snapped up by Spurs as a schoolboy after he starred for Barking and Dagenham District and Essex schoolboys.
Scored a good ratio of goals from wide positions, but was released by Spurs in 1997, after going on loan to Brentford, he joined up with non-league Dagenham and Redbridge, while working in the City. Played a major part in the club's rise towards the Football League and although he had left by the time the Dagger finally got into League Two, Janney was a star in the club's FA Cup runs in which they showed that they could match teams from much higher divisions. Had a brief spell on loan at Braintree Town for a couple of months, as he recovered from a hamstring injury at the start of the 1999-2000 season. In 2001 he earned a non-league England cap playing for the C side in Eindhoven against Holland.
After five years and nearly 300 appearances at Dagenham and Redbridge, Janney left after being unable to agree a new contract with the club, so he started his nomadic travels around Essex non-league clubs, which took him to Maldon Town, Heybridge Swifts, Thurrock and AFC Hornchurch, where his experience made him a useful servant at each of the clubs he played for.
Mark missed the majority of the 2009-10 season through injury.
