The 17-year-old midfielder is one of the Academy's most exciting prospects and made his first start for the club in the final Edinburgh derby of the 18-19 season.

Having made his debut on the final day of last season, coming off the bench against Kilmarnock at Rugby Park, he has gone on to captain Scotland's under-17 side on numerous occasions.

The midfielder operates in the number 10 role, finding space between midfield and defence easily. He scores goals by getting beyond the striker and getting on the end of crosses but he also works hard going back.

He was described by Roger Arnott as "very technical and skilful with a great range of passing."

His brother Callum currently plays for Dunfermline Athletic.

Connor is currently on loan at Cowdenbeath where he will play until January alongside fellow Academy graduate Chris Hamilton.
