Brisbane Strikers Squad Profiles: 21 Chris Maher

Oct 02, 2012 by

A product of the Brisbane Strikers youth system, Chris Maher took a while to break into the starting eleven of the senior team last year but, once there, he put together a string of very strong performances that saw him cement a position over the latter part of the season. Maher is a versatile player who can play either at left back or at centre half or even in midfield. His best position probably remains that of fullback, where his speed, agility and dogged defensive qualities are supplemented by his stamina and his willingness to get forward to help out attacks. He is also one of the most dangerous crossers of the ball in the squad and packs a real wallop when he shoots. Voted the team’s “Star of the Future” in his breakthrough season, Maher has nevertheless had to be patient for opportunities this year as he has been vying with several other high quality wide players for a position in the team.
