The latest episode of The Argyle Podcast is now available to listen to at your leisure.

A journey from Bethel to Barcelona.

Nigel Martyn is widely regarded as one of the best English goalkeepers of his generation. Indeed, he was the first goalie to cost a team £1m, however, his journey into the sport was anything but straight forward.

A failed trial at Argyle was followed by non-league football in Cornwall. A break at Bristol Rovers got him started and allowed him to go on and playing in FA Cup Finals, the Premier League, the Champions League and at World Cups.

'Big Nige' was on pitch when David Beckham scored THAT free-kick against Greece, he put in one of the best displays in a UEFA Cup game away to Roma and played at the Camp Nou against the mighty Barcelona. His one regret though, never setting foot on Home Park.

This is the story of Nigel Martyn.
