Maxime Gardie Signs | Prague Raptors
Updated: Jun 21, 2018
Welcome to the Raptors Maxime! Not only is Max joining our playing squad, he has helped out with a lot of the initial planning for the club, we are thrilled to have him on board. Happy Birthday for Friday Max!
Profession: I'm currently working as C.O.O for a French-Czech company named Exapro (www.exapro.com). We're selling second-hand industrial machinery in Europe.
Favourite Football Team: Stade Malherbe Caen. I like this team because they are my local team and usually have a role of outsiders. We can lose versus anyone but we can also win versus anyone which makes every game quite a thrill! I'm also following FC Barcelona and Liverpool FC very closely!
I've been playing football for about 20 years. I started when I was 13 in Agneaux FC, an 11 a-side small town club playing at local level and I've played there for about 6-7 years. I was playing mostly left back and left wing. Then I was playing mostly 7 a-side games with friends games in Angers (France), Liverpool and Madrid. When I arrived in Prague in 2008 I joined a team from the 6 a-side Hanspaulska liga named PRKA and still playing with them. I've been playing in the lower leagues (Leagues 6-8), mostly as midfielder. I'm also often helping out 2 other hanspaulska teams from 5 and 6 leagues. 2 years ago I joined the Taverners FC playing in the PIBFAL expats league. I'm playing as left back and so far we've always won the league!
