Marcus is a former Bristol Rovers and Stafford Rangers goalkeeper who also had spells at Evesham, Coventry Sphinx, RC Warwick, Bedworth United, Rugby Town and Quorn. He originally joined the Poppies as manager in October 2010 after a breath taking time with Leicestershire side Barwell, ending his tenure with a 61 game unbeaten run. Marcus replaced Morell Maison’s short caretaker spell in succession to Lee Harper. But a traumatic season behind the scenes, saw many top players and staff leave the club, making his life at Rockingham Road untenable. Marcus finished the Conference National season with the Poppies in 15th place. But after eight months with Kettering he decided to leave the club and join Tamworth. He later had spells coaching at Forest Green Rovers and Shrewsbury Town before becoming Chasetown’s manager. Marcus though made a dramatic return to the Poppies in May 2015 becoming the club’s 57th all time manager, succeeding Tom Baillie and Scott Machin who had won promotion to the Evo-Stik Premier. In his first season the club finished in 6th position and last season 9th, winning the Northants Senior Cup for the first time since 2001.
