Red of the Day - Layton Maxwell

by Dave Usher

 

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.

Watched him regularly in the reserves, he was a good player, very busy and tidy on the ball.

 

Not surprised he didn't make it here, but it was surprising he didn't really make it at a better level than he did. Same goes for Jon Newby, by the time he left us he'd developed into a really good player, he was a lethal finisher and hardly ever seemed to miss.

He always seemed to get good reports in the Echo reserve coverage too, I always thought that sounded like a good little side, Newby and Armstrong used to bang them in for fun, Partridge and Warnock were being raved about too. Highway used to rave about Foley too didn't he? Yet nothing became of any of them here.

Michael Foley was class, I couldn't believe no-one took him on when he left us as that lad could play. I saw Heighway at a ressies game a couple of years later and I asked him why no-one signed Foley. He said he could only assume it was because people were put off by his size.

I was on the kop for that game against Hull and left the ground believing I had seen the birth of another new star in the LFC firmament. He was really outstanding in that game and I never understood why he never really got a chance to do it again.

He didn't get a chance because he wasn't really good enough, that was a nice night for him and I remember being really pleased for him, but it was only Hull City.  Even Mad Erik bagged two against them!

Didn't have much of a career did he. Shame like as he was a god little player.
