Tottenham always seem to have someone or other coming through their academy who looks like they’re going to be the real deal and with the likes of Harry Kane, Harry Winks, Kyle Walker-Peters and Oliver Skipp in the first team, who can blame them. This time around, the player is 16-year-old Troy Parrott, who scored again today.
9 – GOAL! We’re off the mark with our first effort at goal as White’s cross from deep on the left is glanced in by the unmarked Parrott. #COYS

The young Irish striker always manages to find his way onto the scoresheet for Spurs’ U18 side, and the more he plays and the more goals that he scores just lead to more fans calling for him to be promoted to the senior side, even if it is too early for the striker. Mauricio Pochettino will certainly have his eye on Parrott and given the Argentine’s track record, a debut from Parrott shouldn’t be too far away.
The youngster is a sublime young player, and in two or three years he could prove to be the man that Tottenham have been crying out for as their second choice striker who could finally be used to deputise for Harry Kane seeing as the transfers of Fernando Llorente and Vincent Janssen haven’t exactly gone swimmingly. For now, though, it will be about staying sharp and showing what he can do for Parrott as his stock continues to rise.

How has he not at least made the bench, give the lad some game time like the last 10-15 if we are winning and see how he does.

The U18 is below is level. It is funny when you notice he is only 16 yo. Anytime he plays he is likely to score and take the man of the match. Get him to the first team.

The Lilywhites absolutely love seeing Parrott sticking them away and will hope to see him in the senior side in the next couple of years.
