Midfielder Conor is a product of the Hale End Academy and will be looking to impress in his first season as a full time scholar next campaign. Liam Brady regards Conor very highly and it’s easy to see why. He likes to dominate games in the centre of midfield and can also push forward to score stunning goals, in the style of Frank Lampard. He has skippered the u-16s on many occasions and has earnt the respect of his team mates. He has pushed onto the u-18s this season and made a handful of appearances, playing in his preferred position of central midfield as well as out on the wing. A tough tackling, no-nonsense player, Conor is always up for a challenge and doesn’t let anything get in his way. He has represented both England and Ireland at Youth level but has now reportedly decided to play for England. He has been watched by scouts from several London clubs, including Chelsea and West Ham. However, Arsenal have fended off speculation regarding his future by reportedly slapping a £1 million price tag on him, and tying him down to a scholarship deal.
