Martin had two spells with Diamonds, initially joining Diamonds in November 1994, on loan from Coventry City. The Welsh born keeper was brought in to replace the injured Kevin Fox and young Chris Mackenzie, and made his debut in the home win over VS Rugby on 12 November 1994. He had begun his career with the Coventry City youth set up, and had a loan spell with Stafford Rangers in August 1994 before arriving at Nene Park. The loan was extended until the end of the season, although Fox returned to First Team duties in February. He returned to the side in April however, playing in a further nine games in the fixture backlog at the end of that season, although his sending off after just 4 minutes at Sittingbourne on 26 April 1995 saw him suspended for the final game of the season. After returning to Coventry at the end of the season, he was released, and joined Cambridge United in May 1995 on a two year deal.

He rejoined Diamonds from Cambridge United on 13 July 1996 after a £6,000 fee was agreed between the two clubs. He became number two to Graham Benstead at the start of Diamonds first season in the Conference but after Benstead had shipped 11 goals in the opening four games, he grabbed his chance to become the number one making 37 appearances during the season before being released in March 1997 after the arrival of Steve Cherry.
