Career Biography

Promising young defender James Martin signed professional terms with Pools during the summer of 2016.

The teenage left-back had spent time on trial with the Club towards the end of 2015/16 and did enough to impress the hierarchy and earn a contract at Victoria Park.

Prior to joining Pools, Martin had been on scholarship terms with Scottish Championship side Queen of the South but an unsuccessful fight for international clearance meant he returned to England.

Ferocious and committed in the tackle, he is also blessed with a sweet left foot and often utilises his pace to motor up and down the left flank.
