Biography

Two minutes before the transfer window closed on 31st August 2016, the Club confirmed the signing of Chris Martin from Derby County on a season long loan.

The striker was born in Suffolk but is a full Scotland international, eligible because of his father. He joined Norwich City’s academy at a young age and made his debut for the first team a few months after his 18th birthday.

He quickly impressed after breaking into the Canaries’ senior side, scoring the winner on his third appearance, before netting in four consecutive Championship matches.

Martin scored 13 goals when he spent the 2008/09 season on loan at Luton Town, including at Wembley as they beat Scunthorpe United 3-2 in the Football League Trophy Final.

He returned to Norwich the following campaign, and was on target 23 times in 48 appearances as they won the League One title.

Further loan spells with Crystal Palace, Swindon Town and Derby followed, before he joined the Rams permanently in the summer of 2013. He departed Norwich having scored 34 goals in 117 outings.

His first season as a permanent Derby player was a prolific one, as he found the net 25 times as they reached the Championship Play-Off Final, where a late Bobby Zamora goal condemned them to defeat by Queens Park Rangers. Four days later he was handed his Scotland debut in a 2-2 draw with Nigeria at Craven Cottage.

Martin was also a regular scorer in the subsequent two seasons, taking his Derby County tally to 61 goals in 148 outings, while he scored his first Scotland goal in qualifying for the 2016 European Championship.
