Maik Taylor

Goalkeeping Coach


The former Northern Ireland international was appointed goalkeeping coach in June 2019.

Born in West Germany, the 6’4” stopper played in non-league for Petersfield, Basingstoke and Farnborough before getting his Football League break with Barnet, where he made 84 appearances.

After a short spell with Southampton, Taylor transferred to Fulham for £800,000 in 1997 and was an ever-present during their 1998/99 Second Division title triumph.

He was instrumental as the Cottagers secured the First Division championship and promotion to the top flight in 2000/01, making 232 Whites appearances overall before switching to Birmingham.

Part of the Blues’ 2006/07 and 2008/09 Championship promotion-winning teams, Taylor featured 242 times in eight years at St Andrew’s and ended his playing career at Millwall.

Taylor won 88 caps for Northern Ireland and was hired as their goalkeeping coach in 2013, while he also held a coaching role at Bradford last season.
