Mariano Martín Alonso (born 20 October 1919 in Dueñas, Palencia - died 9 September 1998 in Cabrils, Barcelona) was a Spanish footballer who played as a forward.

Club career[edit]

After his beginnings with Peña Font, already in Barcelona, Martín joined FC Barcelona in 1939, proceeding to become one of the club's most prolific scorers; during his nine seasons at the Camp Nou, he netted 128 times in only 150 matches, including 30 in 23 contests in his fourth season, although Barça finished in third place.

In early 1944, whilst appearing in a friendly match for Catalonia, Martín suffered a severe knee ligaments injury, from which he never fully recovered; however, as he played in only 29 La Liga games in his last three seasons combined, he still managed to score on 14 occasions.

Martín closed out his career in 1951, after two years with Gimnàstic de Tarragona and one final with his second club, UE Sant Andreu. He died at almost 79, still living in Catalonia (Cabrils).

International career[edit]

Martín gained three caps for Spain during four years. His debut came on 12 April 1942 in Milan, during a 1–1 friendly draw with Germany.
