06 Nov 2018 : Connor McCarthy is our Bowland Brewery Player of the Month for October

Rarely does a new signing at a football club make an impact as immediate and telling as Connor McCarthy has done at Runcorn Linnets.

When boss Michael Ellison secured Connor's signature, his comment was "This is a huge signing for us", and he couldn't have been more accurate.

He is our choice as Bowland Brewery Player of the Month for October.

In a month, which saw striking options often heavily restricted due to injuries, Connor at times seemed to be leading a one-man charge.

His pace and strength provided crucial goals, assists for others while his hold-up play allowed the team to settle and reshape.

In the narrow away win at Kendal, Connor turned in a match-winning performance, despite a below par showing from the Linnets on the day.

Latching onto a defensive lapse at the start of the second half, Connor opened the scoring before a driving run into the penalty area resulted in him being brought down for a spot kick, which Danny O'Brien converted to secure the win.

Connor made it back to back man-of-the-match performances with a telling contribution in the stunning 1-6 victory at Colne. Scoring the fourth goal and creating the sixth were just a snapshot of his overall display on the day.

He then earned high praise for his tireless efforts in the 2-1 defeat at Prescot Cables. Following strike partner Freddie Potter's early dismissal and Mike Simpson also seeing red before half-time, it was left to Connor to single handedly try to hold up the play as best as he could in a one-man Linnets attack.

He chased and harried the Cables defence whenever the ball was cleared by the Runcorn defence.

The final fixture of the month was a Cheshire Senior Cup home tie against Vauxhall Motors and again Connor was a key figure in the second 6-1 victory of October.

He had already created a goal for Bobby Evans in the first half by the time he  rounded off a magnificent month's football with an audacious goal of his own.

Picked out by Niall Watson's low cross to  the near post, Connor turned on the spot and back-heeled the ball into the net with his first touch - leaving the Motors goalkeeper and watching crowd mesmerised.

Congratulations Connor on a well-deserved award!
