Peter Hutton (born 2 March 1973 in Derry, [http://www.derryjournal.com/3422/39Pizza39-reaches-600-mark-for.3972097.jp Pizza' reaches 600 mark for "Candy Stripes"] Derry Journal Online, 2008-04-10. Retrieved 2008-04-13.] Northern Ireland) is a defender playing for FAI League of Ireland football team Derry City F.C.. He is the club's current captain. "Pizza", as he is affectionately known to fans, also managed the club in 2004 for a short period in the aftermath of Gavin Dykes' departure and prior to the appointment of Stephen Kenny.

Career

In his youth Hutton played with Oxford United Stars F.C. when they competed in the Derry and District League. He later played with Coleraine F.C., and at the age of 15, signed for Bradford City's youth training scheme. This saw Hutton move to Bradford for a number of summer months between seasons while still under contract with Coleraine. The contract was effectively one that would have seen Hutton tied to Bradford for his entire playing career. However, he was always very keen to play for Derry City and the task of getting out of his insidious contract with Bradford City began. The threat of legal action and the resulting adverse publicity resulted in the English club relenting and when his contract with Coleraine ran out, he signed for his home-town club, Derry City, in 1991. Made his league of Ireland debut for Derry on the 17th of March 1991.

Hutton has also spent time at Portadown, signing for more than £40,000, [ [http://archives.tcm.ie/irishexaminer/1998/09/02/phead.htm Healy has high hopes for new-look Derry outfit] Noel Spillane. archives.tcm.ie. Retrieved 2008-04-13.] and a season at Shelbourne between his long-term spells at Derry City. He won the League Championship with the latter in 2001-02 and returned to his hometown soon after. By November, 2006, Hutton had made his 300th appearance as team-captain after a 1-0 League of Ireland final-night win over Cork City FC in the Brandywell. As of the April 2008, Hutton had represented Derry on a total of 600 occasions, holding the record for the highest number of appearances for the club ever.

In early December 2006, Hutton revealed his admiration for his former manager, Stephen Kenny, comparing his ability to that of Martin O'Neill's.

The defender won the eircom / Soccer Writers Association of Ireland (SWAI) 'Personality of the Year' award after his fine displays during the 2006 season.

After 18 years service to Derry City he was awarded a testimonial in 2008.
