Nigel Martyn – Football Tonight Appearance | News | MN2S Talent

On 22nd September 2015, Nigel Martyn appeared on BT Sport’s Football Tonight to offer his insight and analysis gleaned from a legendary career between the sticks for the White Army.

Nigel Martyn played goalkeeper in his footballing career from 1987 to 2006, appearing for six seasons at Leeds United. He started his career with Bristol Rovers before moving to Crystal Palace for a then record breaking goalkeeper transfer fee of £1 million, before moving to Leeds. Over the course of his career, Nigel Martyn won 23 England caps, and was eventually forced to retire from an ankle injury after spending the last three seasons of his playing career at Everton.

Originally a talented footballer and cricketer, Martyn decided to focus on cricket for his career, but since retirement has begun to play cricket regularly for the local Leeds team Old Modernians in the Wetherby League.

Martyn was signed to Leeds United in the summer of 1997 by boss Howard Wilkinson along with young star, Lee Bowyer. Martyn was highly regarded by players and fans alike during his six seasons as first choice keeper for Leeds United, until disagreements with manager Terry Venables and the appearance of new goalkeeper Paul Robinson eventually led him to leave the club in 2003.

 

Nigel Martyn spent much of his international career as second choice to David Seaman, but made impactful performances when called upon.
