O’Connor signed for Dave Penney’s Rovers in 2006 from Bournemouth. When O’Driscoll followed him to Rovers the defender shone and played a vital role in lifting the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy that season.
Since then O’Connor has been an ever present member of the first team and became a fan’s favourite. Since Saunders has taken charge, O’Connor has failed to make as bigger impact than in previous seasons.
Honours: Johnstone’s Paint Trophy (2007), League One Play Off Champions (2008), DRFC Player of the Season (2009/10)
We would like to wish Jimmy all the best at Derby.
