Conor McKenna Biography

Wednesday, 13 September 2017
Conor McKenna signs a new four-year deal with Essendon.

"Essendon has made my transition into football an easy and enjoyable one," McKenna said.

"We have a great group of players, and the strong bonds I've made with my teammates have helped me develop my game and drive me to want to achieve success.

"I've enjoyed every moment with the club and am happy I will continue to represent the club for another four years. I believe in our vision, we have an exciting future and over the next four years I hope we can achieve the success we are working towards."

Monday, 6 February 2017
A group of four Essendon players are left shaken by a frightening home invasion, which saw four cars stolen from the Maribyrnong home they share.

Jayden Laverde, Conor McKenna, rookie-listed ruckman Shaun McKernan and VFL listed player James Ferry weren't injured in the brazen robbery.

It's alleged a number of offenders, some armed with baseball bats, broke into the property the players share around 4am on Friday morning.

"Once inside they took wallets and keys to four vehicles, then drove from the property in the cars," a Victoria Police spokesperson said.

"One of the residents woke up after hearing one of the vehicles, a Volkswagen, crash nearby and saw a man getting into another vehicle.

"Itís believed the offenders arrived at the property in a stolen Toyota Camry, which has since been recovered dumped in Maribyrnong.

"The Volkswagen stolen from the property has also been recovered nearby.

"The other three vehicles, a Mazda and two Holden Commodores, remain outstanding."

Essendon confirmed the identities of the players who were victims to the early-morning invasion.

"This was obviously quite a frightening experience for the players involved," football manager Rob Kerr said.

"We are extremely thankful the players were not harmed, and we have offered them the appropriate avenues of support."

Thursday, 3 November 2016
Conor McKenna will remain at Essendon in 2017 after signing a new one-year deal with the club.

"I've really enjoyed my time at the Bombers so far and am looking forward to what we can achieve under Woosha's (John Worsfold) leadership," McKenna said.

"Since arriving at the club, I've worked really closely with the coaches to fast-track my development as much as possible and am really happy with the way things are progressing.

"I've learnt a lot this season, and I can't wait to get back into training ready for 2017."

Thursday, 14 April 2016
Conor McKenna will play for Essendon against Geelong on Saturday after being elevated from the clubís rookie list.

"We're looking for a bit of excitement from Conor, he's a powerful player," Essendon coach John Worsfold said.

"He's still learning the game to some degree, but his form over the pre-season and the last couple of weeks in the VFL we've been pleased with.

"He'll bring some energy, some intensity in the forward line and create some excitement for us up there and help us kick some scores."

Wednesday, 26 August 2015
Conor McKenna will make AFL debut this week after exciting progress at VFL level.

McKenna has been used as a small and creative forward in the club's state league team, kicking 18 goals in 15 games.

"The coach took me in yesterday about three o'clock after training," McKenna said.

"'Cora', who has been working with me all year, he just said 'Congratulations, you're playing against Richmond this week'.

"It's just good to get a run now."

Friday, 12 December 2014
Irish prospect Conor McKenna is undergoing a rigorous football education after joining Essendon as a category B rookie in October.

Recruited from county Tyrone in northern Ireland, McKenna had clubs queuing for his signature based on his athletic talents, but learning the intricacies of the game was always going to be his first challenge.

"It might be 10 minutes here or 10 minutes there, but they all add up," McKenna said.

"It's just good having people explain things to me in more detail, because that's what I need coming from another sport.

"I've got some good development coaches who work with me in the morning and the afternoon, so hopefully it will be a fast-tracking process and I'll get a game soon enough."

Wednesday, 3 December 2014
Essendon select Conor McKenna at pick No.62 in the 2014 NAB AFL Rookie Draft.

"Once we saw Conor we zeroed in and wanted him, and he comes with high hopes. He's settled in well and there are no signs of homesickness," Essendon list manager Adrian Dodoro.

"Our development program has been designed to get him up and running in the next year or two and we're committed to him long term.

"He looks like a natural half-forward but there's no reason he couldn't play half-back or midfield long-term."
