Martyn enjoyed an outstanding 2014 campaign and carried off the Kingstone Press Championship Player of the Year Award and the Tom Bergin Trophy as Man of the Match in the Grand Final victory over Featherstone Rovers.

In 2015 his halfback partnership with Ryan Brierley continued to earn critical acclaim not least from former GB star Garry Schofield and was instrumental in another successful season.

A Leigh-born former Leigh Miners star and BARLA Young Lions and GB Community Lions International, Martyn made his debut for the Centurions in 2009 and has since become only the fifth player in Leigh history to score one thousand points for the Club.

A superb goal-kicker, he kicked 165 goals and two dropgoals in 2014 and followed up with 158 goals and one dropgoal in 2015. He ended the campaign with a tally of 1,501 points in 192 Leigh games and is third in the all-time Club goals chart and fourth in the all-time points chart.
