Malaury Martin (born 25 August 1988) is a French footballer who is currently playing for the norwegian Tippeligaen club Sandnes Ulf, having last played for Swiss team Lausanne-Sport. He is a midfielder, and started his career with Ligue 1 side AS Monaco and has also played on loan for Ligue 2 side Nîmes Olympique.

He has played for France at four levels – under-17, under-18, under-19 and under-21.

Club career[edit]

Martin, born in Nice, made his debut for Monaco in the 2005–06 Ligue 1 season, playing one game that year – a 2–2 draw with Nancy on 13 May 2006. In the 2007–08 season he made eight appearances.[2]

He was captain of the Monaco reserve team and in 2007 was picked out on the UEFA website as being a "name to note" for the future, after his performances for France under-19s at the 2007 UEFA European Under-19 Football Championship, held in Austria, when it was said of him: "Always looks composed on the ball and never seemed to give away possession in the engine room of a French side that at their best were as good as any in the tournament. Equally adept at passing short and long, he is also a free-kick specialist – witness his effort against Serbia."[3]

He was loaned out in the 2008–09 season to Ligue 2 side Nîmes Olympique.[4] He made his debut on 12 September in a 1–0 home loss to Tours.[5] He made a total of 14 appearances as Nîmes escaped relegation to the Championnat National by one point.

After his loan spell and returning Monaco, Manager Guy Lacombe placed him in the reserve, rather earning a first team place. In June 2010, Martyin went on trial at Major's Soccer League side Chicago Fire[6] and English Championship side Blackpool.[7]

It announced on 29 July 2010 that Martin contract with the club has been terminated, having two years to his contract.[8][9]

Blackpool[edit]

In July 2010 he went on trial with newly promoted English Premier League side Blackpool, traveling with the squad to Devon to compete in the South West Challenge Cup pre-season tournament.[10] And in the Seasiders' first game in the competition on 20 July, a 2–1 win over Accrington Stanley, he was named "Man of the Match".[11]

On 11 August, Martin signed a one-year contract with Blackpool;[12][13] however, he failed to feature in the 2010–11 season. At the end of the same season he was released by Blackpool.[14]

Middlesbrough[edit]

On 30 June 2011, Martin went on trial with Championship club Middlesbrough.[15] He signed a one-year contract on 18 July.[16]

He made his competitive Middlesbrough debut against Leeds United in a 1–0 victory on 13 August 2011.[17] He scored his first Middlesbrough goal in a 3–1 win over Birmingham City on 21 August 2011.[18] Martin scored his second Boro goal of his Boro career on 3 December 2011, scoring a free-kick in the 90th minute in Middlesbrough's 1–0 win over Bristol City. Martin scored his 3rd goal on 24 March 2012, scoring a powerful shot from outside the area in a 1–1 draw against Bristol City.[19] In second fixture of the season against Bristol City, Martin scored once again, in a 1–1 draw on 24 March 2012.[20] After the match, Manager Derek McInnes claims Martin has changed the game and describe his goal as a "fantastic strike".[21] Martin, himself, believes his performance gave him a chance to stay in the first team.[22]

At the end of the 2011–12 season, Martin was offered a new contract with the club.[23] However, Martin negotiations has yet been signed and that he won't re-sign.[24] By 1 July 2012, Martin contract has ended.[25]

After his release from Middlesbrough, Martin went on trial with Championship's rival Barnsley.[26]

Lausanne-Sport and Sandnes[edit]

On 18 February 2013, Martin joined Swiss outfit Lausanne-Sport on a six-month deal.[27] On 3 March 2013, Martin made his debut for the club, in a 1–1 draw against Grasshopper and on 3 May 2013, Martin scored his first goal for the club, in a 1–1 draw against Zürich. At the end of the season, he refuse sign a new contract[28][29]

After leaving Switerzland, Martin moved to Norwegian Tippeligaen club Sandnes on a two-year contract until 2015.[30]

International career[edit]

Martin has captained France at every level from under-17s to under-21s.[31]

In the 2007 UEFA European Under-19 Football Championship, held in Austria, Martin scored two goals in the 5–2 group stage victory over Serbia, as the French reached the semi-finals.[32]
