It’s not been the best of weeks for Scott Parker but after his sending off at the weekend, our midfield signing’s mood will have been lifted with news of the latest in a long line of awards.
Despite only cementing his place in the national side last season, Scott has picked up the Vauxhall England Player of the Year as voted for by England supporters.
“It’s a great honour – just looking at the names that are on the trophy it’s quite an achievement. It’s been a good year for me at international level so I’m delighted the fans have picked me,” Parker said.
Scott has already won four out of the five monthly player awards on the Spurs official website and if he stays fit, could possibly add the PFA trophy to the Football Writers’ accolade that he won in 2010-11. Spurs player of the season? – A little early to say but it looks a distinct possibility.
