Name: Troy Parrott
Club: Tottenham Hotspur
Made Senior Debut?: No
Current National Level: Ireland U19 International
Last Season Summary
2018/19 – Parrott hit the mainstream in Youth football last season as he went on an absolute goal rush in the U18’s league, netting 14 times in 9 games, averaging a goal every 56 mins. In the UEFA Youth League, Parrott proved he could do it against some of the best academies in Europe netting 3 times and assisting 1 in 5 matches. The coaches at Tottenham were that impressed that he was soon promoted to the U23 side where he did manage a couple of goals under limited time on the pitch. Parrot was also called up to the Republic of Ireland U21 side, but unfortunately had to withdraw due to injury.
Footy Files expectations this Season
2019/20 – Tottenham have a very exciting youngster on their hands. Pochettino obviously aware of this took Parrott among other youngsters on the clubs pre-season tour, giving Parrot game time against the likes of Real Madrid, Bayern Munich (who’m he hit the post against), Man Utd and Juventus. He did not look out of place at all. What can we expect this season? More than likely to continue his development with the U23 squad. An optimist might say that with the departure of Janssen and Llorente, there may be a place in the first team squad for him, but with recent links to Dybala, it’s looking unlikely. Regardless, we are keen to see how he develops.
