Club career

Celtic

Marshall, a product of Celtic's youth academy, made his debut for the club as a substitute against St. Johnstone at Celtic Park.[1] Although first team opportunities were limited, he excelled in Celtic's reserve team under the management of then coach, Kenny McDowall.

Marshall was thrust in to the limelight soon after these impressive displays for Celtic reserves on 25 March 2004 in a fourth round, second leg UEFA Cup tie against Spanish giants FC Barcelona at Camp Nou. The 19-year-old, deputising for a suspended Rab Douglas, put in an excellent performance to keep a clean sheet to help Celtic into the next round (1–0 on aggregate)[2] after a home win and he then went on to save a penalty from Barcelona's Ronaldinho the following season.[3]

However his Celtic career took a downward turn under Gordon Strachan's management. In the first two games under Strachan he conceded 9 goals, 5 to Artmedia Petržalka and 4 to Motherwell. With the signing of Artur Boruc, Marshall was consigned to the bench and remained there for the following 18 months before being sent on loan to Norwich City.[4]

Norwich City

His Norwich debut was against Blackpool. Marshall was sidelined for the remainder of the 2006–07 season due to an injury sustained in the FA Cup 4th round tie with Chelsea after falling awkwardly on his ankle,[5] and returned to Celtic.

On 4 July 2007, after much speculation in the press, Marshall signed a three-year contract with Norwich, with the transfer fee believed to be close to £1,000,000.[6] Marshall impressed in his pre-season appearances for the club, performing well against Vitesse Arnhem and West Ham United in particular.

Before Norwich's last home game of the 2007–08 season against Queens Park Rangers at Carrow Road, Marshall came third in the voting for Norwich City player of the year after a string of impressive displays. He was the only member of the squad to have played every minute of every game in the season.

Cardiff City

On 12 May 2009, following Norwich's relegation, Marshall signed for Championship side Cardiff City in a deal worth up to £500,000.[7][8] He was chosen as the first choice goalkeeper over Finland international Peter Enckelman by manager Dave Jones, making his debut on the opening day of the season in a 4-0 win over Scunthorpe United before conceding his first goal in a 1-1 draw with Blackpool in the following match. Marshall let three goals past in his first South Wales Derby where City went on to loss 3-2. Marshall suffered a injury in a 2-1 loss against Ipswich Town, resulting in Peter Enckelman coming on for the last 45 minutes and two goals being scored.[9] Marhsall did recover in time for the next game, were Cardiff beat Preston North End 1-0. After his quick return Marshall kept three consective clean sheets the other two coming against West Bromwich Albion and Middlesbrough and also making 150th league appearance against Middlesbrough.

International career

Marshall has won two caps for the Scotland national football team, both in friendly matches played in 2004. More recently he was selected for the Scotland B side in a friendly played at the end of the 2008–09 season.[10] Marshall stated in May 2009 that he aimed to reignite his career for the national team.[11] With first choice keeper Craig Gordon injured, he went on to play in two of Scotland's following three matches, a 4-0 defeat to Norway and a 1-0 defeat to Netherlands.[12][13]
