Peter Mumby


Peter played for Burnley FC as a striker between 1989 and 1992 scoring nine goals in 46 appearances. Born in Bradford he started his career with Leeds United before moving on to Shamrock Rovers, Burnley and Limerick.

His best scoring spell was the six goals he netted in nine appearances for Shamrock Rovers, including a hat-trick against Bohemians.

Peter scored in a 2-0 win over St Patrick’s Athletic to help Limerick lift the FAI League Cup.

Peter is 46 and is now employed as a HGV lorry driver delivering kitchens for a company called Wren Living. He lives in Howden, East Yorkshire which is situated between Leeds and Hull close to the M62 motorway.

His hobbies include walking the dog, going to the gym and also socialising… a lot. Born in Bradford his brother is Keith Mumby the former Bradford Northern Rugby League player.

“It’s the fourth attempt at winning this trophy in Germany and with us all getting older it’s also getting harder to keep fit,” said Peter as the Vintage Clarets prepared for their annual trip to compete in the veterans tournament in Hamm.

“It’s a tournament for players aged 32 and over and with our average age at around 44 it makes it difficult to win, but we will keep trying. With the addition of Alex Kevan, Brad Maylett, Dennis Hill and John Boland it might be our year.”
