James O'Connor kicked off his career with Stoke City where he won the club's Player of the Year award at the end of the 2002/03 season. He moved across the Midlands to West Brom that summer for a fee of 250,000 and ultimately helped the Baggies win promotion to the top tier.

After a successful loan spell with Burnley, the combative O'Connor moved to Turf Moor on a permanent basis in March 2005. He went on to store over 100 league starts for the Clarets before, then Wednesday boss, Brian Laws made O'Connor his first signing ahead of the 2008/09 campaign.

Having made 42 appearances for the Owls in 2010/11, he extended his stay in S6 by a further year in summer 2011.
