Kelvin Maynard (Burton Albion) or Reply Privately

Former Burton Albion footballer Kelvin Maynard was shot dead by two men riding a motorbike in Amsterdam on Wednesday 18th September 2019.

Police confirmed the 32 year old was fatally attacked while driving his car in the Langbroekdreef region of the Dutch capital.

Maynard was attempting to escape the gunmen by driving towards a nearby fire station, but he crashed into the building and was unable to be resuscitated by medics.

Maynard was brought to England by fellow Dutchman Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink in 2014.

He spent two years with Burton, and helped the Brewers to the League Two title in his first season.

But he suffered a knee injury in pre-season that ruled him out of the following campaign, in which the club would seal a second successive promotion.

In all, he played nine times in the league for Burton, scoring once.

The defender also played for Volendam, Olhanense, Kecskemet, Emmen, Royal Antwerp, Spakenburg and Quick Boys.
