Peter won a Munster Youth Cup with local Waterford side Tramore AFC before heading to the US in 2007 where he spent four years with the Drury Panthers of Drury University in Missouri.

Peter returned to Ireland in 2010 and signed for Waterford United in January 2012. He made 17 appearances in the First Division for the club, scoring once, and went on to sign a deal for the 2013 season. He played in 19 league games for Waterford in 2013, scoring against Wexford Youths in a 2-0 win, as they narrowly missed out on the play-offs. He left the club at the end of the season.

In January 2014 Peter signed for Shane Keegan at Wexford Youths where he missed just three league games in the club's First Division campaign, adding 25 league appearances to his career tally. He continued with the Youths for the 2015 season and made another 24 league appearances for the club as they captured the league title and promotion to the Premier Division. A knee injury meant Peter made just 7 league appearances for Wexford in 2016 and at the end of the season he left Ferrycarrig Park to join Leinster Senior League side Firhouse Clover.
