As Peter wound down his playing career he made just 6 appearances and was more often than not named as an unused substitute while honing his management skills as Steve Halford's right hand man in the 2012/13 season and in his last season as a player made just a solitary appearance as a substitute.

Peter is now appraoching his fifth season as joint Team Manager at Mossley with Lloyd Morrison, having previously been assistant manager to Chris Willcock at the former Woodley Sports and then to Halford at Mossley following Gareth MClelland's departure in January of 2012.

As a player, Peter was late into the semi pro game having played for Cheshire amateurs Bollington Athletic for several years before joining Hyde United in 1998 at 25 years old. He started out as a striker but reverted to midfield and was often used as a centre back as well, a position he eventually featured in regularly for his later clubs.

He left a struggling Hyde team to join Altrincham and then stepped up to the Conference with Northwich Victoria. On Altrincham's promotion to the Conference he switched back to Moss Lane in the summer of 2006, making his 200th appearance for Altrincham in that season. He re-joined Hyde for his second spell at the club in 2007, quickly making his 200th appearance for them also. He joined New Mills in the summer of 2008 and then on to Woodley Sports from where he joined Mossley.

After an amateur playing career which saw him play for Chadderton, Maine Road and Mid Cheshire League side Styal, Morrison became player manager at Styal winning the League title in his second season in charge and also the Cheshire Amateur Cup.

He then stepped up to the North West Counties League with Flixton and with little or no budget took the now disbanded club from adrift at the bottom of the NWCL when he took over to avoiding relegation.
