This paper provides analogues of the results of [G.Walker and R.M.W. Wood, Linking first occurrence polynomials over F2 by Steenrod operations, J. Algebra 246 (2001), 739–760] for odd primes p. It is proved that for certain irreducible representations L(λ) of the full matrix semigroup Mn(Fp), the first occurrence of L(λ) as a composition factor in the polynomial algebra P=Fp[x1,,xn] is linked by a Steenrod operation to the first occurrence of L(λ) as a submodule in P. This operation is given explicitly as the image of an admissible monomial in the Steenrod algebra Ap under the canonical anti-automorphism χ. The first occurrences of both kinds are also linked to higher degree occurrences of L(λ) by elements of the Milnor basis of Ap.
