A player who came through the ranks at Fulham, Marcus signed his first professional contract in 2012 and was immediately loaned out to Conference side Dartford to gain experience.

He spent the 2013/14 campaign on loan at League Two Accrington Stanley and his form was rewarded with the club’s Young Player of the Year award.

Following the departures of Maarten Stekelenburg and David Stockdale at Craven Cottage, he established himself as

Fulham’s first-choice keeper for the 2014/15 season and won England under-21 recognition in the process.

After suffering a long-term knee injury at the start of the 2015/16 season, Marcus bounced back in emphatic fashion, helping the Cottagers win promotion back to the Premier League in 2017/18 and has maintained his place as the club’s first-choice keeper in the top flight.

Catching the eye of Gareth Southgate, he was called up to the England squad for the first time in September 2018, for the games against Spain and Switzerland, and has since maintained his place in the Three Lions’ squad.
