Wycombe Wanderers, Peterborough United
Russell Martin began his career with Wycombe Wanderers in 2004 and made his debut for the Chairboys against Cambridge United in August 2004.
He signed a new two-year deal in the summer of 2006 and was a regular throughout the next two seasons, playing every game of the 2007/08 campaign as Wycombe reached the League Two play-offs, only to lose to Stockport County.
Out of contract, Martin moved to Peterborough in May 2008 where he signed a three-year deal. He was named Posh captain in September and was an ever-present as Darren Ferguson's side secured promotion to the Championship.
He fell out of favour at London Road however and joined the Canaries on loan in November 2009. The move was made permanent in January 2010, and Martin would go on to play a big part as City stormed to the League One title.
Martin's first goal in City colours came against Doncaster in September of 2010, and after scoring the winner against high-flying Queens Park Rangers and a late equaliser against Cardiff was dubbed "the Norfolk Cafu" by supporters.
The club's Vice Captain, Martin also secured his place in Norwich City history by scoring against Ipswich in the 5-1 win at Portman Road in April 2011.
Martin has been a virtual ever present in the side at right back, despite playing at centre back for Scotland. It looks likely that he will play there more often for his club as he has now taken on the number five shirt.
Martin became Captain of the side after Neil Adams was appointed manager after previously holding the role of "Club Captain."
A genuinely nice guy, he is a worthy leader on and off the pitch.
