Player Profile – Max Carveth
NAME: Max Carveth
TEAM: Good question, ask Clappers… played with the 1s on the weekend.
POSITION: Right back, left back or centre midfield if the opposition is really shite.

- Tell us who you are outside of the club. What do you do, how would you describe yourself?
I worked as an analyst in the racing and media industries back home although am currently looking for permanent work here in London – might have to take up begging to pay match fees shortly. Outside of work I enjoy watching an array of sport and am loving getting amongst London’s many markets since I’ve been here.
- How did you end up at Merton FC?
Back in Sydney I played with ex-Merton FC player Will Taylor who some may know or remember. He tipped me off about the club and put me in touch with Clappers and Ivan.
- What do you like most about Merton FC?
Definitely the cracks in the pitch down at the hood, should make for some mean seam bowling come cricket season. Jokes aside, there seems to be a great atmosphere around the club and a good bunch of guys which is essential.
- If you could play for a professional team, which would be it and why?
Being a Liverpool fan I’d have to say them.
- Do you have any pre-match rituals or superstitions?
Nothing apart from trying my hardest not be hungover for the game.
- Lastly, share us your goals/expectations for the season.
No idea what to expect given I’ve been here about two seconds but the goal would have to be for the team to bag some wins, have a few laughs along the way and hopefully I can keep my one goal every three seasons average on track too – I’m due this season.
Favourite Player (at Merton, or in professional football): Yet to have a favourite at Merton although Harrison is certainly the most lethal finisher in the club based on his oggie at the weekend. Professionally, probably Tom Rogic, an Aussie that plays for Celtic.

Favourite team in the UK: Liverpool FC
Favourite team outside the UK: Don’t have any in particular but have a soft spot for the teams that Australians playing abroad play in.
Childhood Hero: Stevie G
Favourite Food: Mexican
Favourite Drink: Love a dark ‘n’ stormy
Favourite Band: Don’t really have one, liking War on Drugs at the moment.
