My opinion of Sean O'Connor as well as his stats for this season and his Queens career.

Sean O'Connor


Squad Number

Born : Wolverhampton, 07th Jul, 1981

Signed : Jan, 2006

Previous Club : Morcambe

Moved to Annan on Jan, 2011

January 2011

The comback never really happened for Sean as he failed to reach the fitness levels required for the 1st division, and in the end moved on to try his luck at Annan.

March 2010

Sean feels his knee has improved enough during his lay off for him to give it another go.  He played a couple of games for Annan as a trialist, whilst back training with Queens, and now Queens have decided to give him a chance to prove his fitness with some trialist games for us.

June 2009

Forced to quit at the age of 28 due to knee problems. Widely acknowledged among 1st Division managers as the best target man in the league, it will be so difficult for Queens to manage to replace the best forward partnership in the Division, Sean and Dobbie, next season.



April 2008

Although he doesn't score as many as Dobbie, many opposition managers have said he is the most difficult forward to mark in the division. He and Dobbie compliment each other perfectly, and must be a nightmare to plan against, Sean will batter your defence, then Dobbie will go and dance through it like a ballet dancer! Finishing could be better on occasion, although took his chance of a semi final glory goal superbly, to go into the Scottish Cup Final as the competitions top scorer.

March 2006

Sheep Heid first came to Queens in controversial circumstances in 2001, when Dundee United recalled him on loan from Morton then promptly sold him to us. Made an immediate impact in the title winning side, but was badly affected when a thug from his former club, Morton, decided to attack him from behind in a Challenge Cup game on 13th August, 2002, putting him out of the game until he made a brief appearance in the final. He was never quite the same after that through and decided to move to Morcambe to be nearer his home at the end of the 2002/03 season. His time at Morcambe was blighted by injury, probably the after affects of the kick he took against Morton, but Ian McCall decided to take a risk and bring him back to Queens in January. As I write this, he still hasn't played due to another minor injury, but is expected back soon.

My Opinion August 2002

The big striker was quite a scoop when we bought him from Dundee United in March. Just a few weeks before he had been outstanding against Queens while out on loan at Morton. His arrival, along with Lyle, gave Queens a forward line which will be the envy of most First Division sides. He can be a bit slow to get going, but once he's in his stride he's difficult to stop. Also harries defenders, allowing them no time in possession of the ball.
