Biography


Mark O’Hara began his career at Kilmarnock, making his competitive debut aged just 16 in a 2-1 defeat to Stenhousemuir in the League Cup in August 2012.

Mark initially plied his trade as a defender, and made 78 appearances for Kilmarnock over 4 seasons without scoring. Mark’s final game for Kilmarnock was their 4-0 victory over Falkirk in the Championship Play-Off, which allowed the Ayrshire club to keep their place in the Scottish Premiership.


Paul Hartley moved to sign Mark for Dundee in June 2016, and converted the player from a defender to an attacking midfielder. Mark adapted very well to his change of position, netting 5 goals and providing 3 assists in his first season.

In February 2017, Mark struck the opening goal in a 2-1 victory over Rangers at Dens – Dundee’s first home victory over the Ibrox club since 1992. The midfielder also struck twice in Neil McCann’s first game in charge, a 3-2 victory over Motherwell at Fir Park.

Mark kept his place in the Dundee team the following season, and scored Dundee’s equaliser in the 1-1 draw with Dundee United in the League Cup Group Stage at Dens. Mark also netted both goals in another 2-1 victory over Rangers at Dens, and important strikes in wins over Ross County and Partick Thistle.

The midfielder’s form tailed off in the second half of the season; his last goal coming in a 2-2 draw with Inverness Caledonian Thistle at Dens.

Mark finished the season with 6 goals from 39 games in all competitions, and left Dundee at the end of his contract to sign for English League One side Peterborough United.

Mark’s Peterborough career started brightly, however after the sacking of the manager that signed him, Steve Evans, the midfielder was loaned to Lincoln City. Mark helped Lincoln to win the 2018/2019 League Two title, and returned to Scotland on loan to Motherwell the following season.

In the summer of 2020, Mark signed for the Steelmen on a permanent contract.
