The 21-year-old put in a number of solid performances in the middle of the park for the Reds across the month - starting in style - scoring in our 2-1 win away to Peterborough United.

A clean sheet and a home win ensued for the Reds against Burton Albion, Connell anchoring the midfield superbly to provide a solid foundation when building attacks against the Brewers.

Boxing Day took the Reds to Accrington Stanley, Luca starting the game in what was a combative performance from the former Celtic man. A yellow card after half an hour resulted in Connell being replaced during the interval.

The final game of 2022 saw the Reds welcome Fleetwood Town to Oakwell, looking to make it seven unbeaten in Sky Bet League One. James Norwood opened the scoring after the hour mark, cancelled out by a penalty converted by Admiral Muskwe on 77 minutes.

In the 85th minute, a corner was won by Norwood, swung in by Connell and headed home by Robbie Cundy to send Oakwell into raptures and end the year on a high.

On winning the award, Luca thanked the supporters for their backing: "Thank you for all of your votes for the player of the month award.

"I really appreciate it. I'm looking forward to getting back to Oakwell and hopefully we can get back to winning ways."
