Paul Martin (born 8 March 1965) is a Scottish football former player and coach. Martin played for Kilmarnock, Hamilton Academical, Stranraer (on loan), Dumbarton, Albion Rovers and Queen's Park during a 17-year playing career.

Martin was captain of the Dumbarton Second Division title-winning team of 1991–92. After retiring he coached at Queen's Park and had a couple of caretaker stints there as well serving as assistant manager.

Martin then managed Dumbarton, but was sacked after the club were relegated from the Second Division in June 2006.[1]

He was then assistant manager to predecessor John McCormack at Albion Rovers.[2] When McCormack moved to Hamilton Academical to become assistant manager to Billy Reid, Martin was promoted to the position of Albion Rovers manager.[2]

Martin won the manager of the month award for the Third Division for September 2010,[3] and again in April 2011.[4]

Martin resigned as manager of Albion Rovers on 20 May 2012, immediately after defeating Stranraer in the Second Division Play-off final, citing health reasons for his decision.[5]

As of December 2010, Martin was running a business called One Stop Roofing.[6]
