The Romford-born custodian made 25 appearances for the Dons before joining the then-European champions Liverpool in January 2006. Martin’s four-year stay at Anfield saw him become a regular with the Reds reserves, who won the Premier Reserve League northern title in 2007/08, though his first team opportunities were limited by the outstanding form of Spaniard Pepe Reina.
He spent the 2008/09 season on loan with eventual League 1 champions Leicester City, making 30 appearances for Nigel Pearson’s men as they clinched promotion to the Championship at the first attempt.
During the 2009/10 season he spent time on loan with Tranmere Rovers and Leeds United, before joining Championship side Derby County for a month as emergency cover for the injured Stephen Bywater.
Martin, son of West Ham legend Alvin, has now made more than 200 appearances for the Dons.
