Ballybrown native and former Limerick FC centre back Paudie O’Connor has been named as the Sky Bet League Two Player of the Month for December following a string of outstanding performances for his club Bradford City.
O’Connor left Limerick 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.
The 23 year-old eventually departed for Bradford on a three-year deal in 2019 and has gone from strength to strength at League Two level, occasionally captaining the side and scoring three goals along the way.
The League Two Player of the Month for December award is some much deserved recognition for the defender’s efforts and anybody who watched the youngster strut his stuff at the Markets Field will not be one bit surprised by the former Regional United, Kilcornan and Breska Rovers man’s achievements to date.
