891 Mark Yeates

Biography

Pacy winger Mark Yeates joined City on a season long loan in September 2007, but his impact was not registered on any Richter Scale measure and he returned to North London before the end of the calendar year.

Yeates hailed from Tallaght in the Dublin suburbs and joined Tottenham at the age of 16.  He played a few games for the North London side but made his name in 2005/06 when he was a near ever-present and constant supply line for Championship side Colchester United.  Anyone that impressed for Colchester inevitably ended up at Hull City a few months later, hence his loan to the KC Stadium.

Yeates rejoined Colchester United permanently in 2007 and again made a strong impression.  This form prompted moves to Middlesbrough, Sheffield United and Watford where he established himself as a Championship standard first teamer – at Vicarage Lane he played irregularly at Premier League level.  From 2013 onwards Yeates drifted down the league pyramid with moves to Bradford, Oldham, Blackpool and Notts County.  Since 2017 Yeates has played at Conference level for Eastleigh.

During his Tottenham days Yeates played three Ireland under-21 matches, but did not progress to the senior squad.
