Pen Pic

Originally a rejected trialist from the days of Gudjon Thordarson, Martin signed for the Alex the week the Iceman left the club after Dario recalled the former Wealdstone defender to sign a 2 year contract.

Unfortunately the versatile defender's Alex career has been thoroughly blighted with injury from day one. After six promising appearances in his first season, including one start and one goal, Martin failed to make a single appearance for the first team last season after various injuries forced a long spell on the sidelines. Having worked hard to regain some consistent fitness recently, Martin is hoping not only to get games under his belt in 2011-2012 but push for a starting spot.

He seems to have the backing of fans however. His brief appearances early on showed a lot of promise. He's certainly comfortable on the ball - perhaps a bit too comfortable for Dario's liking - and he wasn't phased by spells at full back nor centre back. If we can keep him fit then there's certainly a good player there who could push for a regular place in the side quite easily.
