Glad to be back
Scott Parker is delighted to be back in action.
The midfielder returned as a late substitute in Sunday’s win against Swansea.
That was his first action of the campaign after being sidelined with Achilles trouble.
Either side of that late cameo at the Lane, Scott played 90 minutes for our Under-21s at Sunderland and then followed up with a 68-minute stint for the Under-21s again at Villa on Monday.
“I’d been out for quite some time and I'm just pleased to be back out there,” said Scott, our One Hotspur Members Player of the Year last season.
“My main objective now is to try and get as much game time as I can and try to get fully fit. It’s still early, but I feel good and feel sharp. I’m certainly getting there.”
Scott scored a rare goal in Monday’s 3-0 win at Villa Park - a victory that secured top spot in National Group Two of the Barclays Under-21 Premier League.
“I got in the box and it opened up for me! It never normally does, but it did on that occasion,” he smiled. “I stuck one away, so that was nice.”
