There hasn’t been much fanfare from Wolverhampton Wanderers, but non-league side Maidenhead have more prominently confirmed the transfer of Maximilian Kilman from them to us.

We did announce the signing and his new two-year deal with our Under 23 side, but it came as part of the announcement stating that Alexander Molberg and James Pardington had also joined up with us – prior to adding Dongda He to our youth ranks as well.
Kilman is a left-back and is decently rated, carrying international experience from England’s Futsal team, and having come through Maidenhead’s youth ranks he made his National League debut last season against Gateshead.
Molberg has joined on a loan spell from Hobro IK as a trial and he’s a centre-half, whilst Pardington is a goalkeeper who joins up for the year after he left Rushall Olympic. He is a 17-year-old midfielder who comes in from Notts County having progressed through their youth system.
With Kilman’s announcement being slightly more public, he certainly received a few comments on social media.
I have seen him play a couple of times, great Left Foot, very quick. Very tall. Could be a gem!!!! Who knows.

Another quality, quality player taking a big step up from the famous York Road Magpies — you’ll be missed, Max, but great to see you edging closer to everyone getting to see what all the fuss is about. ⬛️⬜️⬛️⬜️⬛️???????? ???? ????

Absolutely delighted for him and further credibility for the club. Another set of boots to fill, though.

He certainly departs with plenty of well wishes and that’s always a good sign when a player leaves a club, but like ever with youngsters congratulations to them, welcome to the club, and it’s now in their hands.
