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’m not going to lie and say that I was enjoying my life at that time. Football was my life. I was playing for a club that I loved, I’d worked so hard to get there and I could see it falling apart. It was devastating."
"I’ve just started reading Ant Middleton, First Man In. He’s the guy off the TV series SAS: Who Dares Wins, I really like those programmes."
"The Hale Country Club is a place where I go quite a lot. It’s a gym and there’s some nice restaurants in there and you can go in the pool outside. Especially after football it’s nice to go there when you’re a little bit tired and just chill out."
"Someone who has been at the top for so many years, is Roger Federer. I like tennis but I don’t really get much chance to play because it’s quite hard to play and there’s lots of twisting and turning, and you don’t want to get injured."
"We didn’t have anything against Sunderland, but it does stick in your mind, their fans goading us on the final day of 11/12. In the build-up to our next meeting at Old Trafford, you got a sense for how much our fans remembered."
