Nigel Martyn

Where is Nigel Martyn now?

Hailed by former Everton manager David Moyes as his greatest-ever signing, Nigel Martyn was forced to retire from the game after a stress fracture in his ankle in 2006.

Playing for just four teams over a 19-year period, Martyn amassed over 700 appearances and became the first £1 million goalkeeper when he moved from Bristol Rovers to Crystal Palace in 1989.

He also represented the England national side on 23 occasions but was mostly selected as second-choice keeper behind David Seaman.

A former Cornwall schools representative team cricketer, Martyn currently plays Sunday cricket as a wicket-keeper and has played regularly for local teams near his Harrogate home including Leeds Modernians and Knaresborough.
