‘Martha’ joined us in 2012 from Billingham Town as an outfield player but was drafted into a goalkeeping position after having had several years experience playing in goal previously. He made the position his own and never looked back. Great with both feet as you would expect and a brilliant shot stopper Martha won the Wearside League golden gloves award twice and his ability was never better shown than when saving 3 penalties in the Wearside League Cup Final shoot out in 2015. In fact he’s a penalty expert, stopping them and scoring them! Well deserved Man of the Match in both Vase Semi Final Legs shows why Martha has nailed down the No 1 position now.
