Formerly known as Max Dunne, his name was changed to Max Taylor from February 2019.
A Mancunian centre-back who was born 10 days into the new Millennium.He joined the club in 2014 following a successful trial and will hope to compete for a place in the defence. The only Manchester-born player in the intake of eight players for 2016, although Aidan Barlow hails from nearby Salford. The defender made Reserves debut ahead of schedule, when coming off the bench in the final seconds of the draw with Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium before returning to fight for a place in the Under-18s side. He finished the 2016/17 campaign with 12 starts for the Under-18s. Dunne continued to progress in the following campaign, making 17 appearances in all competitions. The youngster formed part of the defence that won the Under-18 Premier League North trophy. A step up into the Under-23s squad, coached by Ricky Sbragia, followed. He successfully responded to cancer treatment during the 2018/19 season and everybody at the club is providing the utmost support in order for him to resume his career.
“I am never at home - just ask my wife! She knows about that. It is longer hours and obviously a lot more work, but you get the rewards.”
"It is something I have really enjoyed. Obviously, there have been ups and downs throughout the season, but I am really enjoying myself and looking forward to what is ahead.”
“I was ready to finish playing, I'd had enough. Luckily I could go out when I was ready. Not many people get into that situation where they can decide for themselves."
