Premier League Ambitions For Maxi

2 March 2017

After signing a new deal at North End, goalkeeper Chris Maxwell is aiming to take the next step in his career at Deepdale.

 
After joining the club last summer, Maxwell has fought for his place in the starting Xl, and since featuring against Bournemouth in the EFL Cup back in September, the 26-year-old hasn't looked back and is hoping to take his career to the next level with PNE. 
 
On signing his new deal, the 'keeper said: "I'm absolutely delighted, it's fantastic knowing that I'm going to be here for an extra year as well.
 
"It gives me an opportunity to help progress Preston North End and hopefully progress myself in the process. 
 
Speaking of his ambitions for his time with the Lilywhites, Maxwell continued: "When I first came here I said I wanted to make the No.1 shirt my own, I want to play week in, week out for Preston North End and at the moment I'm doing that. 
 
"First and foremost I hope to continue to do that, but also recently I have spoken about how I want to play in the Premier League. 
 
"I'm an ambitious person, I want to play in the Premier League an always have done since I was a little kid. 
 
"I know that the squad that we have and the staff that we have share the same ambition so it's a healthy mix amongst the group. 
 
"That is certainly one of the goals that I aim to achieve, to play in the Premier League with Preston North End. 
 
The former Fleetwood Town man has made an impact both on and off the field since his arrival in PR1, playing a big part in the Community and Education Trust's work around the local area. 
 
"I think it's important that the players aren't just players for the 90 minutes on a Saturday.
 
"I'm heavily involved in the community side of things which is something that I really enjoy as well. 
 
"I believe that players have a duty to be a good role model for young people in the community and it's something that I hope to keep pursuing and hopefully make a tiny difference if anything."
