Max Curry wins 2023 Charles Clover Brown Award

1 May 2024

2nd XI stalwart Max Curry was awarded the 2023 Charles Clover Brown Award for outstanding services to the Club at the biennial OHAFC dinner held at the Queen’s Club on Friday evening.

Max is a familiar face to many, having made his debut over a decade ago for the Blues in a 4-1 win over Old Westminsters 2s in October 2011. A tall, strong, combative striker, the 35 year-old scored his first goal in the 2-2 home draw with Old Brentwoods 2s later that season and went on to feature in the 2s ultimately unsuccessful Junior League Cup Final tie against the Old Carthusians 3s.

Max’s goalscoring record gradually began to improve as the seasons went by and, having proven himself a fine player and a committed member of the 2s, he was appointed vice-captain alongside Kyri Pittalis ahead of the 2016/17 season – a post he has held ever since. Although he is now found more often in central midfield, Max continues to play with the same desire and combativeness that he has displayed throughout his playing career. He is also now eligible for Veteran status and will surely become a key piece in the side in the next few seasons.

Max has also contributed hugely to the club off the field, holding the post of Treasurer since 2016, helping to keep a steady hand on the club finances. He formed part of the touring squad to Marbella in 2015 where, for the final couple of days, he sported one of the largest bruises known to man, covering most of his upper arm.

Despite tying the knot in 2025, it is hoped that this stalwart of the OHAFC will continue contributing to the Club for many years to come, both on and off the field.
