Playing career[edit]

Walsall[edit]

Peniket was born in Stourbridge, West Midlands,[4] and began his football career with Walsall.

Fulham[edit]

In 2009, despite interest from Manchester United, Peniket joined Fulham.[2][5] In June 2010, Peniket signed his first professional contract, keeping him until 2013.[6]

In October 2011, Peniket joined League Two club Hereford on a one-month loan, later extended until the end of the season.[3][7] He made his Football League debut in the 2–1 home defeat to Bristol Rovers on 10 January 2012, replacing Delroy Facey for the last twelve minutes of the match.[8]

On 30 August 2012, Peniket signed for Conference National team Kidderminster Harriers on a loan deal from Fulham until January 2013.[9] He made his début for Kidderminster in a 1–1 draw against Barrow, coming on as a substitute in the 71st minute.[10] On 21 November, Fulham confirmed that Peniket had been recalled.[11]

Peniket signed for Conference side AFC Telford United on a one-month loan on 29 January 2013[12] and made his début the same day, against Kidderminster Harriers away, losing the match 1–0.[13] Peniket scored his first ever senior goal for AFC Telford United against Hyde at New Bucks Head on 12 February 2013.[14]

On 2 March 2013, Peniket signed for Conference South club Farnborough on an initial one-month loan deal.[15] On 22 March 2013, this loan was extended until the end of the season.[16]

Peniket was one of twelve players released by Fulham at the end of the 2012–13 Premier League season.[17]

Tamworth[edit]

Following his release by Fulham, Peniket moved down four divisions to join Conference National side Tamworth on a one-year contract.[18] Peniket made a great start to his career when he scored twice in a 4–1 victory over Southport on 7 September 2013, after failing to score in his first five games.[19]

Halifax Town[edit]

He made his debut on 5 August in a 1–2 defeat away to Woking[21] and scored his first goal for the club the following week in a 3–0 victory over Torquay United.[22]
