The talented left sided player, who celebrates his 21st birthday this weekend, gained Football League experience at Hartlepool United.

Martin put pen to paper on a contract much to the delight of manager Nathan Haslam, who said: “I’m over the moon to get hold of him. It’s taken a while to get this deal over the line. He fits the profile of the player that we’re after; he’s ultra fit and has got the right attitude. He brings everything that we’re looking for in a player, he’ll chip in with a few goals as well and over the course of time I do believe he will play at a higher level. I’m really happy we’ve got him.”
