Martin Paterson

I met him at Al Lang Stadium in St. Petersburg, Florida in 2019.

It was a few days after the regular season had ended. The Rowdies, whom he was an assistant coach for, were preparing for their road playoff match against Louisville FC, so I went down to the stadium, hoping to get an autograph before they left for Louisville, KY.
Right as I arrived, assistant Coach Stuart Robson, who always takes time to talk to me, was also just arriving. He asked who I was looking for and I showed him the card. He got a big kick out of it, even took a picture of it for himself. He told me he'd go ask Martin to come out and sign it for me. A few minutes later Martin came over to sign for me.

Martin signed a 2012/2013 Topps Match Attax Championship card #72.
