On loan from Northampton Town
The central defender joined the Cards in January 2024 on loan from Northampton Town until the end of the season. Dyche came through the Cobblers’ academy, making his debut in December 2020 against Crewe Alexandra as a substitute. His first start for the club came at the Kassam Stadium just three days after his debut in a League One fixture against Oxford United.
Max would join National League North sides Kettering Town and Brackley Town on loan in 2021-22, scoring his first senior goal whilst at Kettering. He would return to Northampton and play a part in their promotion campaign last season, making 18 appearances in League Two, including starting the last four games of the season, scoring once in the second last game of the season against Bradford, before playing the full 90 minutes as the Cobblers clinched promotion with a 1-0 win at Tranmere Rovers in May 2023.
This earned Dyche a new two-year contract at Northampton, which he signed in the summer. A short loan spell at Aldershot Town from September to October 2023 followed before he returned to Northampton.
