Martyn Giles (born 10 April 1983 in Cardiff) is a Welsh professional footballer. He plays in the left-back and centre-back positions. He has played for Wales at U17, U19 and semi-professional levels. Despite usually playing left-back, he is actually right-footed


Giles was a trainee at Cardiff City for three seasons, making his debut in March 2001 against Hull City as a substitute for Matt Brazier, and had brief spells at Barry Town and Port Talbot Town before joining Morecambe in November 2003. However he did not play a first team match for the Shrimpers and left soon after. He then joined Carmarthen Town where he was a first team regular. In two seasons he made over 70 appearances and scored 4 goals in the Welsh Premier League.

On 27 July 2006 he signed for Hereford United.[1] He was a first team regular in the Bulls defence, and was named Fan's Player of the Month for September. However his season was effectively over by the end of October when he suffered two long-term injuries, initially suffering dizziness from a head injury. Once he had recovered he then sustained a back injury which ensured he did not play again in the 2006–07 season, and he was released at the end of the season.

On 26 June 2008 Giles joined Conference South team Newport County. Giles was a regular for Newport in the first half of the 2009–10 season but featured less in the second half of the season as Newport County were crowned Conference South champions with a record 103 points. However, Giles was released by Newport at the end of the season and agreed terms with Welsh Premier League side Llanelli three days later.[2]
