Biographical Text

Goalkeeper Jonny Maxted had two seasons with Exeter City between 2019 and 2021 at a time when the club was beset by injuries to its ‘keepers. He played around forty matches before joining Northampton Town.

Jonny started his professional career with Doncaster Rovers and, having been on loan at Goole and Gainsborough Trinity, moved on permanently first to Hartlepool and then Forest Green Rovers. After a loan spell at Guiseley, Jonny joined the Yorkshire club on a permanent basis before returning to the professional ranks with Accrington Stanley in January 2018.

After making 27 first-team appearances at Accrington Jonny signed for Exeter City in July 2019, ostensibly as second-choice behind Lewis Ward, and made his first-team debut against Coventry City in the League Cup on 13 August 2019. With Lewis Ward soon suffering a broken arm Jonny’s bow in the league came against Forest Green on 12 October 2019. Jonny then played through until Lewis Ward’s return from injury in February only to return for the second and third of City’s play-off matches in June 2020.

Jonny made another dozen league and cup appearances in 2020/21 before his release in May 2021. He then joined Northampton where he was used as a back-up goalkeeper sitting on the bench in league games and making occasional appearances in cup competitions. However, Jonny did play in the first leg of Northampton’s play-off semi-final against Mansfield Town, stepping in for the suspended Liam Roberts, and remained at Sixfields during the 2022/23 season. Having frequently sat on the bench throughout the season Jonny was released after Northampton's promotion in May 2023 and agreed terms with Newport County in July 2023 where he acted as the club's back-up 'keeper before moving on again in the summer of 2024 to sign for National League North Brackley Town.
