Dons tie down Dave

30 June 2015

David Martin has put pen-to-paper on a new deal to remain with the Dons.

The goalkeeper has signed a two-year contract which will keep him at stadiummk until at least June 2017.

Martin played a crucial role in the men from MK1’s promotion-winning campaign of 2014/15, making a number of key saves as well as keeping 20 clean sheets.

The 29-year-old featured in 47 games last season to take his total for the Dons to 253 in all competitions and lift him into second place in the Club’s list of appearance makers, behind only Dean Lewington.

Speaking to mkdons.com, Martin said: “I’m buzzing to have signed a new deal here. It’s been a great summer for me, personally, and now I get to spend another two years at this great club.

“After promotion I had to do my coaching badges, which took a bit of time up and then I had week before my wedding and honeymoon. Once I got back we got it done and now I can’t wait for the season to start.”

Martin, who was part of the Dons’ inaugural squad back in 2004 before moving to Liverpool two years later, returned to Milton Keynes in the summer of 2010 as Karl Robinson’s first signing as manager.

Since being back at stadiummk, Martin has averaged around 16 clean sheets a season, while he has always surpassed 40 appearances.
