John Charles "Jack" Martin (25 July 1903 – 31 December 1976) was an English professional footballer who played as a central defender.
Yorkshire-born Martin crossed the Pennines to begin his career with Lancashire club Burnley in 1923. After failing to break into the Clarets' first team, he joined Accrington Stanley the following year.
Martin made his debut for the Seasiders on 27 November, in a 2–2 draw with Port Vale at Bloomfield Road. He made two further league appearances in 1926–27, before being released at the end of the season.
He remained in the north-west for the remainder of his career, playing for Southport (two spells), Macclesfield Town, Nelson, Wigan Borough and Oldham Athletic. He retired in 1932, after a nine-year and eight-club playing career.
