Lee Martin Profile
Lee Andrew Martin, born Hyde, England, February 5, 1968. Lee Martin initiated his football career at Manchester United where he made his first Football League appearance as a substitute for Remi Moses in a 2-1 Division One win against Wimbledon at Old Trafford on the 9th of May 1988. The promising prospect eventually established himself in the first team during the 1988-89 campaign following the departure of Scottish international Arthur Albiston.
Although his soccer career had its ups and downs, Lee Martin found a permanent place in Manchester United history when the buccaneering left fullback managed to score the only goal in the FA Cup Final Replay against Crystal Palace at Wembley on the 17th of May 1990. A dedicated and dependable defender, the local born player notched up 109 first team appearances for Manchester United before he agreed to join Glasgow Celtic midway through the 1993-94 season. Unfortunately, he suffered a broken leg shortly after his arrival at Parkhead, and following just 19 Scottish Premier League outings for The Bhoys he decided to move on to Divison Two team Bristol Rovers at the start of the 1996-97 campaign. Martin later appeared for Huddersfield Town, Glossop North End, Bangor City, and Cefn Druids before he made his retirement announcement in 2008.
