Peter Mark Such (born June 12 1964 in Helensburgh, Dunbartonshire) is an English cricketer. Such was bought into the Test arena in 1993 as a replacement for John Emburey but despite taking 6 for 67 on debut only played an initial 4 Tests before having to wait 5 years before his next appearance.

Such enjoyed a 19 year first class career including stints at Nottinghamshire and Leicestershire before joining Essex in 1990. It was at Essex where he gained most success although he is perhaps best remembered for hitting the winning boundary in the second day of a Natwest Trophy semi final against Glamorgan in 1997 when play had been suspended the day before due to bad light with Mark Ilott and Robert Croft having an on field confrontation seen on BBC television. []

Such is also well known as a popular inclusion in 'The Hamnett Song'. The lyrics are:

I love Peter Such,I love Peter Such,Ham doesn't earn very much,I love Peter Such.
