Martin was born in Albion, Guyana August 31 1959 and after being selected to

Senior Trials for Guyana at a young age, migrated to Toronto with his

family. Sadly he left us on October 26, 2000 - at far too young an age.

Martin would have been an asset, on or off the field in ICC Trophy 2001.

Martin like the late Ken Bullock and the late pioneer Charles Wilson,

regrettably will not be present in person next year to see fruits of their

labours. Cricket Canada must work to make MJP, KB and CW proud. Only hard

work, devoted preparation and stellar on-field performances and success can

do that! ICC Trophy 2001 must be the ultimate tribute to people who have

served Canadian cricket.

Martin is survived by son Duane 12, wife Jeannie (hospitalized at present),

mother, sister and brothers including Paul, current national team player &

Vice Captain. He is survived also by innumerable club, league and other

friends in Canada, USA and internationally. Canada will miss his ready

smile, his class and his graciousness. There is no doubt that he will be

watching us in ICC Trophy 2001!

In Toronto, Martin first played with Caribs C.C., in a friendly fixture

before moving on to outstanding successes with Overseas, Vikings, Toronto &

District , Ontario and Canadian teams. Martin was an outstanding batsman

and useful off-spin bowler. He was Captain or Vice-Captain at League,

Provincial, Regional and at National Level.

Among his many accomplishments were ICC Trophy (Associates Trophy)

appearances for Canada in 1986 (England), 1990 (Holland) and in 1994

(Holland ). He also appeared for Canada against the USA(1983), Jamaica

(1984), Bermuda (1985), Barbados (1987), Denmark (1988), Holland and Denmark (1989).

Among his many outstanding innings, perhaps his best remembered will be his

magnificent innings of 104 runs against Jamaica in 1984. He was cool under

pressure, tough and smart, but played the game as it should be played. He

was a team player and leader.
