Limerick’s Paudie O’Connor named Player’s Player of the Year for League Two side

The Limerick man retained the award he first won in 2021.

Limerick native Paudie O’Connor has been named the Bradford City AFC Players’ Player of the Year for the second successive season.

The former Regional United, Kilcornan and Breska Rovers man collected his award at last night’s ceremony at the Utilia Energy stadium.


 The club captain was also crowned the JCT600 Player of the Year.

The 24-year-old had a loan spell with the League two side during the 2018/19 season before signing a permanent deal for the following campaign.

He has started in each of his 45 appearances this season at centre-back scoring three goals in the process.

The Bantams finished in 14th in the table, midway between the play-off and relegation places.

The Ballybrown native left Limerick FC, after helping them gain promotion to the top tier, for Leeds United in 2017 following a stand-out season in the First Division for the Super Blues.

The 6’3 defender captained the Leeds U23s side and made four appearances for the first team that saw him nominated for their young player of the year award in 2018, before moving to Bradford.

He also had a loan spell with Blackpool prior to his move to Bradford.
