Josh Martin reflects on Premier League debut and looks ahead to the future

3 July 2020

Josh Martin has reflected on his first couple of months training with the Norwich City first-team in an exclusive interview with OTBC.

Martin made his Premier League debut in the first game after the restart, the 3-0 defeat to Southampton.

And the winger, 18, described it as a “great experience”.

“Before the game, I was pretty comfortable and confident because it was no different to the friendly games we’d had, so I felt like I had a little bit of experience from those games, especially the Tottenham one,” he said.

“Coming onto the pitch, again it was a great experience but I wasn’t out of my comfort zone because it wasn’t like I was coming out in front of 30,000 people. It was what I’ve been used to for the last few weeks since we’ve been back.

“It was exciting to know that my family and friends were at home watching on the TV. They were telling me to be proud of myself after the game.”

Martin is clearly an ambitious young man and he’s already set himself a number of targets over the next 12 months.

“For this season, it’s quite simple. I want to play as many games as I can and help the team as much as I can. As a team, it’s about trying to stay up and work together.

“Next season, if we do get relegated, the same thing applies. We’ll want to get back into the Premier League, stay up and fight, looking at this season as a learning curve because we are quite a young squad.

“For a lot of the players, the boss said the other week, for 95 percent of us it’s our first season in the Premier League. Hopefully, we can go into next season more confident and with more experience.”
