Corey Maynard Biography

Saturday, 10 August 2019
Corey Maynard will retire at the end of the 2019 season after a long-running battle with a persistent hip issue.

"Obviously I'm bitterly disappointed with how things have panned out for me from a physical standpoint over the past 18 months," Maynard said.

"The game doesn't owe you anything and unfortunately my hip can no longer meet the demands of the AFL game."

Tuesday, 19 June 2018
Corey Maynard is ruled out for the rest of the season after being booked in for hip surgery.

Maynard, who played against Geelong in round one but not at AFL level since, has been battling to overcome the injury since April.

Wednesday, 11 October 2017
Corey Maynard signs a new two-year deal with Melbourne to remain at the club until the end of 2019.

"We were very pleased with his development throughout the year and had a dominant VFL finals series," Melbourne football manager Josh Mahoney said of Maynard.

"We look forward to him developing further and taking a spot as a Category 'A' rookie which will make him available for selection from round one."

Saturday, 5 August 2017
Corey Maynard makes his AFL debut for Melbourne at Manuka Oval with 18 disposals (5 kicks and 13 handballs), 7 tackles and a goal in a 35-point loss to GWS.
Thursday, 3 August 2017
Former basketballer Corey Maynard will make his debut with Melbourne this week against Greater Western Sydney.

The midfielder, who joined Melbourne this season as a Category B rookie after playing college basketball in America and representing Australia at junior level, has been in outstanding form in the VFL.

"He's a really contested player around stoppages and through the midfield. He's got a mature body and he's doing some really exciting things at VFL level," Melbourne coach Simon Goodwin said.

Tuesday, 9 May 2017
Corey Maynard has been ruled out of this weekend's game after sustaining a significant concussion as a result of a crude bump from North Melbourne forward Lindsay Thomas in the VFL.

Maynard spent the night recuperating in hospital after being taken off on a stretcher following the heavy head knock in the first minute of the second quarter of the Casey Demons' game against Werribee at Hoppers Crossing.

Lindsay Thomas has escaped with a three-match suspension at the VFL Tribunal but will not be available for AFL selection until round 13.

Thomas pleaded guilty for a high bump on Corey Maynard in the VFL that left the Melbourne rookie unconscious and battling significant concussion.

Thomas will miss five AFL rounds as a result of the suspension, with a state league match between the VFL and the WAFL, and North Melbourne's round 12 bye effectively extending his penalty by two weeks.

"I just want to say how remorseful I am on the incident on Sunday with Corey," Thomas said as he exited VFL headquarters at Ikon Park.

"I've reached out to Corey and given him my apologies and wished him a speedy recovery."

Wednesday, 17 August 2016
Melbourne has signed former NBL basketballer Corey Maynard as a category B rookie.

Maynard is the brother of Collingwood's Brayden Maynard. His father Peter Maynard played eight games for Demons between in 1980-81 before playing 216 games in the SANFL with Glenelg and Woodville West-Torrens.

Maynard's grandfather, Graham Campbell, played 151 games for Fitzroy and won the 1957 best and fairest.

Maynard, 24, has not played football since he was 16 and can go straight on to the Demons' list under the AFL's category B rules.

"I'm really excited," Maynard said.

"I obviously played footy while I was growing up and it was my number one sport for a long time so I'm really excited to get stuck into it.

"(Dad) likes to tell us he was pretty skilful and we've watched some old tapes of him. He forces us to sit down and watch them with him when they won two flags back in the '80s. He was a really good footballer back in his time.

"(Brayden's) played nearly 30 games now and he's only 19 so he's got off to a really good start in his career. I'm a long way off that. It will take a lot of time and I'm realistic about that but I'm really excited about the opportunity."
