Marcus Lewis Holness (born 8 December 1988 in Swinton, Greater Manchester) is an English professional footballer who is currently under contract for Tranmere Rovers. He is a defender.


Holness began his career with Oldham Athletic, but did not play any competitive matches for them. He was signed on loan in October 2007 for Rochdale, playing nine times for the Dale. Marcus impressed with his performances, and manager Keith Hill made him Rochdale's first signing of the January 2008 transfer window, joining on a free transfer.

Holness was loaned to Conference National side Barrow for a month in January 2009, having only made six league appearances with Rochdale in the 2008–09 season prior to this.

Holness left Rochdale in July 2012, having made over 100 appearances for the club.[2]

He joined Burton Albion in 2012, playing over 20 times for the club before leaving on 27 June 2014 to join fellow league 2 club Tranmere Rovers
