Maxwell Myers was born at Norwood, and attended the Norwood Primary and Technical Schools.
A tall, slightly built local junior, he made his league debut in round 4 of the 1945 season. Named at full forward, he kicked 3 goals 4 behinds in Norwood's win against West Adelaide : 8.16 to 7.15. The following week the left-footer kicked 5.4 against Glenelg, on the Norwood Oval.
Myers played five senior games in his first year and at the end of the season travelled to Broken Hill with the Norwood league squad to play against a combined local association side.
He played in an era when the Redlegs were particularly strong and consequently found it difficult to keep a regular spot in the league team.
Myers played another five senior games in 1946 but spent the entire 1947 season in the Reserves.
In 1948 he made another two appearances in the league side and was named the best all-round player in the Norwood Reserves.
He continued to play Reserves football for a couple more years.
Myers also played A Grade cricket for East Torrens
