Jabba's Comments

An excellent squad player who took his chance when John Lukic's form dropped a couple of seasons ago. A good shot-stopper and reasonable on crosses, he wasn't likely to get much chance in the side unless Nigel Martyn has a serious injury.

His one game in 1997-98 was against Sheffield Wednesday with Nigel Martyn suspended - and he didn't do too badly, but was probably responsible for one of their two goals.

1998-99 didn't exactly got off to a great start for Mark - he picked up what turned out to be quite a long-term injury, leaving Paul Robinson as our replacement keeper, and ended sadly as Beeney announced his retirement on March 3 1999.

He's since moved back down south where he now manages The Brickies - Sittingbourne FC in Kent - in the Dr Martens League.

Simon Martin says: Out of the 2 keepers at MUFC (the other being Nicky Johns) Mark was the better keeper. Delighted for him that he made it to a top flight club. Pity he didn't quite get the break but still a good keeper. I saw him play at Dartford, for MUFC, many times and still have good memories of the whole team during the time in the football league

Paul says: i thought that mark was an excellent goalkeeper but never really got to prove that he was. i think that if he did get his chance to prove his point then i think that he would be leeds number 1 goalkeeper instead of john lukic.

Rude Boy says: What a legend he was!!!!!

Ste says: He was another unlucky number 13 kept out by a favoured Lukic, he could and probably should have made more appearances for SUPER LEEDS - really looked like a goalkeeper should too - average lookin and the 1st in the canteen for a pie sandwich. Funny name too - Beeney! Beeney! a folk legend in Leeds.
