Alongside Callum Minkley and Jordan Brown, Connor Dixon has made a seamless transition from the Under-18s to Under-23s.
Dixon’s most noticeable quality is his work-rate in the centre of the park but he also possesses great technical quality, with his clinical finish against Sheffield Wednesday in pre-season demonstrating this perfectly.
He made two appearances off the bench for the Under-23s last term but his best football was played with the Under-18s, where he made an impressive contribution of five goals and two assists in 26 appearances in all competitions.
The 18-year-old is now a regular in Darren Wassall’s midfield and alongside his title-winning teammates, he will be aiming to hold onto his place and keep improving as the season progresses.
