Timeline

  • Date of Birth

    Conor was born on this date in Hessle, East Riding of Yorkshire, England.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Having come through the youth ranks at Hull City, Conor had played for Carlisle United, Grimsby Town and Chesterfield on loan before arriving on a season long loan from KC Stadium to Tannadice in July 2014. His move immediately followed Andrew Robertson's transfer to Hull.

  • United stormed to the top of the league on the opening weekend of the 2014/15 season with a stunning 3-0 away win at Pittodrie. United had failed to record a single victory against the Dons last season so it was always going to be a tough opening fixture for the tangerines. Jackie's first team selection of the season had a familiar look from middle to front, with the Manager sticking by players used extensively last season. However, at the back there were three debutants in the four man defence. Jarek Fojut and Callum Morris formed the central defensive partnership and Conor Townsend came in at left back. Former United man, David Goodwillie started up front for the Dons.

  • Last Appearance - St Mirren 1 - 1 Dundee United

    With the previous game with Inverness postponed, this was United's third match in a row away from home. Unbeaten in 2015, United were keen to maintain this run but St Mirren's formed had picked up recently suggesting a close encounter.
