The Sheffield-born forward has made just eight appearances for Harrogate this season, six of them as a substitute.

He joined Harrogate in March 2020 after prolific spells in non-league with Brighouse Town and Guiseley.

Following a youth career at Sheffield United and Barnsley, Martin also played for Staveley Miners Welfare, Worksop Parramore, Goole and Sheffield FC.

His time at Brighouse saw the 6ft striker hit 30 goals and 11 assists in a campaign that saw him named the club’s Player of the Year.

He then scored 16 goals in under 20 appearances before injury disrupted his first season at Guiseley.

Martin started Harrogate's play-off semi-final and final when they earned promotion from the National League in 2019-20, and then scored six goals in 42 games during the following campaign.

He is expected to go straight into the squad for Tuesday night's home game against Boreham Wood.
