The 20-year-old midfielder completed his move to the League Two club on Friday.

The move to Brunton Park is seen as the next step in the development for a player who has progressed through our Academy system.

Connor, who has been a regular in our Under-23s, had a short stint on loan with Ayr last season, scoring on his full debut, but the arrangement was cut short following the curtailment of the Scottish season.

The Newcastle-born youngster also tasted life with the Boro first team last season when he was an unused substitute for the trip to Bristol City last August.
