Versatile forward Connor returned to Edgeley Park for a second spell this Summer, joining the Cub after a hugely successful four year spell at Tranmere Rovers.
Capable of playing anywhere behind the striker, or up top himself, Connor first played for the Hatters in a loan spell from Scunthorpe United during the 2012/13 season, where he impressed with eight goals in 16 appearances, before returning to his parent Club.
Successful spells at Maccelsfield and Wrexham followed before his move to Prenton Park, where he played a crucial role in back-to-back promotions for Rovers. Making a total of 140 appearances in his time there, Connor featured in three play-off finals, scoring in two of them and providing the assist or the winner in the other. His 119th minute winner in the League Two play-off final against Newport has immortalised him to many Tranmere supporters.
Connor signed for the Hatters alongside his older brother, James, with both brothers excited at the prospect of playing together for their hometown Club. His first season back at Edgeley Park was cruelly interrupted, however, after Connor was diagnosed with Chondroid Sarcoma.
After more than six months out whilst receiving treatment, Connor made an dream return to football in November 2021, coming on as a substitute against King’s Lynn Town and scoring late on in a 5-0 County win.
Connor’s away sponsor is Rick Fletcher.
Connor’s Stockport County Appearance Number (SCAN) is: 1339
