Biography

A second home, Reginald Martin played for Catford, and did his selection for the Great Britain team no harm with a brilliant performance in a trial match against the Duke of Argyll’s team at Lord’s in April 1908, in which he scored four goals. He subsequently went to the Olympics and won a silver medal, and was involved in one of those great Olympic sporting moments when Canada’s Angus Dillon broke his stick, and was having difficulty finding a replacement. Martin generously agreed to leave the field of play until Dillon returned. In 1909 and 1910, Martin helped Catford win the Southern Flags, but, sadly, were beaten in the National Club Championship at Lord’s both times. Firstly, 15-3 by South Manchester in 1909, and then resoundly by Old Hulmeians 20-6 the following year.
