Russell Kenneth Alexander Martin is a footballer who plays for Norwich City and the Scotland national team. Though his profile is primarily that of a right-back but he can also play as a central defender. Starting his career with Brighton, for whom he did not feature in a league match, Martin established himself at Wycombe Wanderers, for whom he made over 100 appearances. During the 2005–06 season he made appearances at left-back, right-back, centre-half and in midfield, as well as winning the goal of the season award. On 29 May 2008 he moved to Peterborough United, who had just been promoted to League One, on a three year contract. He played every match in his first season with the club as they gained promotion to the Football League Championship. Following Mark Cooper's appointment as a replacement for Darren Ferguson in November 2009, Martin joined Norwich City on loan. On 7 May 2011, he was the runner up for the Norwich City F.C. Player of the Year award to winner Grant Holt, in a season where he played every minute of each game. After an impressive first season in the Premier League with Norwich filling in well at centre back during some games, Martin signed a new three year deal in June 2012.
