Background

Martin began his career at his local club West Ham signing as an apprentice in May 1959 before turning professional eighteen months later. He soon became a regular in the West Ham first team making 302 league appearances and scoring 81 league goals.

In this time, he won a European Cup Winners Cup medal and the World Cup with England for whom he scored the second goal in the 4-2 victory over Germany. He joined Tottenham in March 1970 for 220,000 plus Jimmy Greaves and enjoyed even more success.

He won two League Cups, one UEFA Cup and accumulated England caps so that at the end of his international career, he had played 67 times for the English national team.

A winner of the 1966 World Cup with England, Martin Peters spent the twilight of his career at Norwich City. However in the five years from March 1975 to August 1980, Martin played 232 games for the Canaries scoring fifty times. Twice the player-of-the-year at Carrow Road, Martin's vision and ability helped the Canaries secure a regular spot in English Football's top flight.

He left Norwich to become player coach at Sheffield United in August 1980. His twenty four games for the Blades gave him a final total of 882 games and 220 goals. Like many skilful players, Martin could not transfer his success into management and left Sheffield United in June 1981. He briefly returned to Norfolk to play for Gorleston in the 1981/82 season.

Martin has since retired from the game to work in the insurance business. He was awarded an MBE for his services to the game. He has been appointed to the board of Tottenham Hotspur in August 1998.
