Biography: Midfielder David Martin joined The Sports in June 2018. He began his career in Sussex with Brighton & Hove Albion, before returning back to his native South London with Slade Green in 2004 and then Dartford in 2005. With The Darts, Martin scored 14 goals in 68 appearances over 2 seasons, form which attracted the attention of then-Championship side Crystal Palace, who he joined for a fee of £25,000, though he was restricted to only 14 appearances at Selhurst Park. He made the switch across South London to Millwall in 2008, where he made 90 appearances, scoring 9 goals. David then had spells with Derby County, Notts County and Walsall before joining Southend United in 2012, making 31 appearances during a year in Essex. Spells with Luton Town, Bristol Rovers and Stevenage followed before being signed by Steve King at Whitehawk, being a crucial part of The Hawks’ famous FA Cup run to the Second Round in 2015 and helping them to the National League South Playoffs in 2016. He left shortly after for Bromley, before joining Margate on loan, a move which he made permanent last season, before leaving this Summer.
David Martin made no appearances during this season.
