Club career

Born in Romford, London Borough of Havering, Martin started his career as a youth-team player with Tottenham Hotspur where he originally played as defender.[2] He moved to Wimbledon in 2003, and moved to Milton Keynes Dons in August 2004 when Wimbledon were relocated to Milton Keynes and renamed. He made his debut in 2004 and went on to make 25 appearances for the club, including 15 league appearances.

After a successful trial period,[3] he signed for Liverpool on 12 January 2006. He was an unused substitute in Liverpool's Carling Cup game against Reading on 25 October 2006.[2] In his first season playing for Liverpool Reserves he kept eight clean sheets out of 13 starts, and became a regular starter in the reserve team. And when Charles Itandje was injured he was an unused substitute in a number of first team matches.[4]

On 23 February 2007 he was signed by Football League Two club, Accrington Stanley on loan for a month.[5] However, he was injured within five minutes of his debut, without even touching the ball, against Lincoln City, damaging his ankle which ruled him out for the rest of his loan spell and he returned to Liverpool.[6] After regaining his fitnes he returned to Accrington on loan for the rest of the season,[7] making his comeback in a 1–0 win over Torquay United,[8] and helping the club avoid relegation to the Conference National.[9]

On 6 November 2007 Martin was on the bench when Liverpool beat Turkish club, Beşiktaş 8–0 at Anfield in their UEFA Champions League group match.[10] He was a member of the Liverpool reserve team which was Premier Reserve League Northern champions and Premier League National champions in the 2007-08 season.[citation needed] In May 2008 he signed a new contract with Liverpool until June 2010.[2]

Leicester City Loan

On 4 August 2008, Martin joined League One team Leicester City on a six-month loan,[11] making his debut in a 1-0 home win over Stockport on August 12.[12] In December, Martin's loan deal at Leicester was extended until the end of the season.[13] He revealed on 30 January 2009 that he wanted a permanent move to Leicester, having made 13 clean sheets in 26 appearances for the club.[14] Martin made a total of 25 league appearances as Leicester secured their promotion as league champions, but was unable to secure a permanent deal with the club.

Return to Liverpool

Rafa Benitez named Martin in Liverpool's 28-man squad for the 09/10 Champions League group stage.[15]

Tranmere Rovers loan

On 16 October 2009 he joined Tranmere Rovers on loan for a month.[8] Martin competed for the number one jersey with Luke Daniels and played 3 league games for Tranmere before returning to Liverpool. Martin was an unused substitute against Southampton.

Leeds United loan

On 26 November, Martin joined Leeds United on loan until 28 December to provide cover for the injured Shane Higgs and provide competition with Casper Ankergren and Alan Martin. Liverpool decided to not allow him to be available for Leeds' FA Cup games. Martin was named on the bench against Oldham Athletic, meaning he replaced Alan Martin as Leeds' sub goalkeeper whilst Higgs was injured.

He made his debut for Leeds in the Football League Trophy Northern Section semi-final at Elland Road against Accrington Stanley.[16] On 24 December he extended his loan by a further month, until 30 January, and Liverpool also gave him permission to play for Leeds against Manchester United in the FA Cup. The loan extension was largely to do with Higgs suffering a further setback in his recovery from injury. Martin's loan deal was extended again on Transfer on deadline day (1 February) until 10 February 2010 after which he returned to Liverpool.

Derby County loan

On 12 March 2010, Martin joined Derby County on a month's loan as cover for the injured Stephen Bywater and to play in the match against Doncaster Rovers on 13 March after reserve goalkeeper, Saul Deeney, received a red card during the same match against Reading on 10 March.

International career

Martin played for the England under-17 at the UEFA European Under-17 Football Championship in 2003.[17] He played for the England under-19 team at the UEFA European Under-19 Football Championship in 2005, when England were runners-up to France Under 20's in the final held at Windsor Park, Belfast Northern Ireland.[18] He has also been capped once by the England under-20 team.[2]
