Player Biography

Max, who joined the Club in March 2010, is the Second Team Physio and has a challenging yet enjoyable role with Kent Cricket. He attends all Second Team matches and looks after the assessment and treatment of injuries, acquired by the players.

He controls the warm ups, utilising games, stretching and moderate cardiovascular activity to prepare the players to proceed with skill based tasks and drills with the coaching team prior to the match.

Max also works closely with the Academy players, during the off season, to sustain weekly sessions aimed at improving injury awareness and general conditioning, but specifically with Pilates and core conditioning to prevent injuries to the lower back.

He began life as a personal trainer and sports masseur, working in local fitness and leisure centres. Around this time, Max decided he wanted a career that offered greater challenges so he undertook a Bsc Hons degree in Physiotherapy at the University of East London, where the 2012 Olympic games medical site will be held. As a post graduate he began working for the NHS; at first the QEQM Hospital in Margate. He then went on to specialise in musculoskeletal injuries as a senior physio at Sittingbourne, Faversham and Sheppey hospitals. During this time he also worked with Folkestone Rugby Club, Kent Crusaders Basketball Team and the Great Britain Water ski Team as a physio.
On a personal note, Max enjoys all sport; especially basketball and football. He previously played county rugby for Kent in both the 15 and 7 a side teams whilst also competing for Great Britain in Judo.

Max is a mad Manchester United fan who enjoys watching England play rugby. He also loves fruit gums and pickled onion monster munch crisps. He is married and has two amazing daughters.
