Britt first came here on trial last July following his release from Walsall earlier in the year and he signed a one year contract for us at the start of August. In a career that started at Newcastle Utd he rarely ever achieved a guaranteed starting place and in fact the only club that he ever played more than a handful of games for was at Yeovil where he made sixteen appearances in two loan spells.
It wasn't until he came to Aggborough that he really managed to make an impression on a team and he ended the season with us having made fifty one appearances and scoring nine goals. He also assisted in seventeen other goals scored by Matt Barnes-Homer and Justin Richards.
Known for his brilliant crossing of the balls and mainly excellent corners he was not so good when it came to helping a defender out and the right side of the pitch was often left exposed. Then again was George Best remembered for his work in defence?
Martin was another player that SHOULD have been offered a better contract last season but again due to incompetence from the board we have been left without the chance of seeing him rip sides apart next season. The loss of a quality player like him makes you feel that this club will never progress any further than where we are now.
That was in some way proved earlier in the week when the second string keeper, Dean Coleman, was given a new contract and Mark Yates stated that he had been waiting long enough for the number one jersey and now he had the chance to make it his. Proof if ever that we will not be replacing Bartlett with a keeper of equal standard but make do with what we have.
