Peter Cherrie (born 1 October 1983) is a Scottish football goalkeeper who plays for Northern Irish side Cliftonville.


Cherrie started his career with Airdrie United. He played one game for them before moving to Ayr United.

Cherrie signed for Clyde after impressing in a trial and a subsequent glamour friendly with Manchester United in July 2005, which saw him come up against Ruud van Nistelrooy and Wayne Rooney.[1] Cherrie made his competitive debut for Clyde against Peterhead in the Scottish League Cup in August 2005.

Cherrie also played in the Bully Wee's Scottish Cup giant killing over Celtic.

Cherrie was released in May 2007 after his contract expired. However, he was brought back to the club by new manager Colin Hendry.[2] Due to the good form of David Hutton, Cherrie didn't get a minute of first team action in the 2007-08 season, however, a series of good performances in Clyde's pre-season friendlies of 2008 saw him challenge Hutton for the #1 jersey, and he started his first competitive match for 18 months in August 2008. Cherrie was released by Clyde in June 2009 along with the rest of the out of contract players, due to the club's financial position.[3] On 8 July 2009, he signed for Irish side Dundalk F.C.. Since arriving at Dundalk, Cherrie's form has been excellent, making him one of the most favourite players amongst the Dundalk supporters.

At the end of the 2010 Airtricity League season, Peter was voted as Dundalk's Player Of The Year. On 29 October 2010, Peter signed a new one-year deal with Dundalk, keeping him with the club through the 2011 season. He once again signed a one-year deal with Dundalk on 31 January 2012. He made his 100th league appearance for Dundalk against Derry City in Oriel Park on 20 July 2012.
