Calaum Jahraldo-Martin (born 27 April 1993) is an Antiguan professional footballer who plays as a forward for Premier League side Hull City.

Early life[edit]

Jahraldo-Martin was raised in Jamaica before moving to Harrow, England at the age of 11. After missing a trial at Brighton & Hove Albion due to illness he joined FootballCV[2] and attended trials days at Rushden & Diamonds, Newcastle United, Brentford and Barnet. Following the trials days, Jahraldo-Martin received interest from Conference South side Boreham Wood and went on to sign for them.[3] During his time at FootballCV he received the FootballCV Academy Player of the Year Award.[4]

Club career[edit]

Jahraldo-Martin joined Isthmian League Division One South side Dulwich Hamlet in 2012 and during the 2012–13 season, scored 2 goals in 20 league appearances for the Greater London club as they went on to win promotion to the Isthmian League Premier Division.[5][6] His impressive performances resulted in a 2 week trial at Championship side Hull City in which Jahraldo-Martin played for the Hull City Reserves.[7] Hull manager Steve Bruce was impressed with the youngsters performance and signed him in March 2013.[8] On the transfer, Bruce said: "He's been a breath of fresh air and who knows, we might just have unearthed a little gem."[7] He made his Hull City debut in a League Cup match against League One side Leyton Orient on 27 August 2013, coming on as a substitute for Nick Proschwitz in the 67th minute.[9]

International career[edit]

In late August 2014, Jahraldo-Martin committed to representing Antigua and Barbuda internationally and joined the squad as they prepared for the first round of 2014 Caribbean Cup qualification.[10] Jahraldo-Martin made his international debut in Antigua's first match of the tournament, a 6-0 victory over Anguilla. He also scored his first international goal in the match, opening Antigua's scoring in the eighth minute.[11]
