Club careerEdit

Born in Jerez de la Frontera, Cádiz, Martín graduated from Xerez CD's youth system, and made his senior debut with the reserves on 7 January 2013, against GE Bazán CF.[1]

On 3 May 2013, Martín made his debut for the first team, in a 1–3 home defeat against Córdoba CF for the Segunda División championship.[2] In August he moved to the latter, being assigned to the B-side in Segunda División B.[3]

In January 2014, after being rarely used, Martín moved to Écija Balompié also in the third division. On 21 August, he joined Tercera División side CD Guadalcacín.[4]

On 11 July 2016, Martín returned to the third level after agreeing to a contract with Real Balompédica Linense.[5] Roughly one year later he signed for another reserve team, CD Vitoria in the same division.[6]

On 2 August 2018, Martín signed for UD Melilla still in the third tier.[7] The following 12 July, he agreed to a three-year contract with AD Alcorcón in the second division, but was immediately loaned to Cultural y Deportiva Leonesa for one year.[8]

On 25 August 2020, Martín was loaned to fellow third division side CD Atlético Baleares for the 2020–21 campaign.[9]
