Bio:

Robert (Bobby) Alexander Mann (born 11 January 1974 in Dundee) is a Scottish professional footballer currently playing for Peterhead.
Mann, a defender, started his career with St Johnstone in 1991 before joining Forfar Athletic a year later. He remained with Forfar for 7 years before moving to Inverness Caledonian Thistle in 1999. He was part of the Inverness team who famously defeated Celtic in the Scottish Cup in February 2000 and he helped them reach the Scottish Premier League for the first time in season 2003–04.
 
Despite having reached the Premier League with Inverness, he joined fellow Premier League club Dundee. In his first season at Dens Park, Dundee were relegated to the First Division. Although he was appointed club captain, Mann became an increasingly peripheral figure for the Dark Blues during the 2006–07 season. He reached an agreement to leave Dens Park and was re-united with former boss Steve Paterson on January 31 2007, after signing with Scottish 2nd Division side Peterhead.
