St Asaph born Maxwell enjoyed a dream first team debut for the Reds when he scored at the Kop end against Hull City in the Worthington Cup in September 1999.
Picking the ball up on the left, he cut across the penalty area, leaving two defenders trailing in his wake, before firing home an unstoppable shot into the far corner of the net.
He was man of the match that night, turning in a mightily impressive performance on the left wing. He didn't feature again in the first team that season but he was one of the Reserves' most consistent performers as they romped away with the Premier Reserve League title, forming an impressive midfield partnership with fellow youngster AlanNavarro.
He joined Stockport County on loan for the '00/01 season, and scored on his debut for them too. At the end of that season his contract with the Reds was not renewed and he left the club under the Bosman ruling to join Stockport on a permanent deal before eventually moving on to Cardiff a year later.
He failed to make an impression there however and over the next decade he played at more Welsh clubs than a young Shirley Bassey.
