Born: 04 February 2002 (Dublin, Ireland)
Born and raised in Dublin, centre-forward Troy Parrott attended O’Connell School.
He featured three times for our Under-18s towards the end of 2017/18 and top-scored with 10 goals at the Under-17 Borgaro Maggioni Righi tournament in Italy.
He made great progress in 2018/19 in spite of a couple of spells out injured, scoring 14 goals in nine Under-18 Premier League outings as we finished second in the table. He also scored one in one in the Under-18 Premier League Cup and played twice in the FA Youth Cup against Millwall and Arsenal.
In the Under-19 UEFA Youth League, Troy bagged three goals in five appearances, while he stepped up to play twice for the Development Squad against senior Football League sides in the EFL Trophy. He also led the line for the Under-23s on 10 occasions in the Premier League 2, scoring his first two goals at that level to give us a crucial 2-1 victory at Swansea City in April, 2019 - a result that contributed to us avoiding relegation from that division at the end of the campaign.
Having trained and travelled with the first team on a handful of occasions in 2018/19, he made his senior debut during our tour of Asia in July, 2019. He subsequently made his competitive first team debut from the start in a Carabao Cup third round tie at Colchester United in September, 2019.
Troy has represented Republic of Ireland at youth level - he played at the 2018 European Under-17 Championship, scoring three goals in four games, while he notably scored a hat-trick against the Faroe Islands in a European Under-19 Championship qualifier in October, 2018.
