Chris Martin Joins Elite List

Recommended Posts


Chris Martin's winning goal against Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Sunday sent Derby County into round four of the FA Cup. 

The clever finish from six yards put the striker into the top 20 the club's all-time scorers.

Martin has scored 69 times for the Rams and moves alongside Douglas 'Dally' Duncan.

The last player to break into the top-20 list was Bobby Davison, who had two spells at Derby in the Eighties and then on loan in the early Nineties.

A great achievement.  Well done that man.

As an aside... off the top of my head, I think my favourite goal of his wasn't actually a goal of his!  That rebound off the bar, on to the keeper and in... Brighton PO Semi 1st leg.  The crowd reaction still gives me goose bumps!

Great achievement.

On a slight tangent, do we have one of the highest all-time scorers records in the country? I remember being surprised when Lampard broke Chelsea's that it was in the low 200s. Even Rooney's record for United is 253. I highly doubt that Bloomer's record will ever be broken.
