Midfielder Connor Dixon is one of a number of players to have made a seamless transition from the Under-18s to Under-23s at Derby County.
Dixon’s most noticeable quality is his work-rate in the centre of the park, but he also possesses great technical quality too.
His best football was played with the title-winning Under-18s in the 2018/19 season, where he made an impressive contribution of five goals and two assists in 26 appearances in all competitions.
He made two appearances off the bench for the Under-23s as a reward for his progress.
He followed that up with 12 appearances for the Under-23s in 2019/20, his first season as a permanent member of the squad after signing professional terms, and three appearances in the UEFA Youth League for the Under-19s.
