|Mark joined Montrose in the summer of 2021 on a two year deal from neighbours Arbroath where he was captain. The highly experienced 30 year old left Gayfield following a successful 7 year spell that included 242 appearances, 7 goals, and both a League 2 and League 1 winners medal. The Dundee born midfielder signed for Arbroath in the summer of 2014, from Lowland League Champions Spartans, having started his career at Raith Rovers, before moving on loan to Tayport. He quickly became a first team regular, Mark made 44 starting appearances in his debut season and even caught the eye of Aberdeen boss Derek McInnes, who invited him to Pittodrie for a trial. This continued form led to Whatley’s appointment as captain in 2016 and starting all but one league game that season he led the Red Lichties to League 2 glory. Two years later, Mark’s captaincy helped Arbroath romp away with the League 1 title, taking the part-timers into the Championship.
