Troy played for Belvo for his whole schoolboy career before moving to Tottenham Hotspur.

Here is how the Irish Independent have described him.

The exploits of the Ireland U-17 team in May’s European Championships provided a glimmer of hope in what was quite a dispiriting year for Irish football. Dubliner Parrott was to the forefront of that campaign, with his performances all the more impressive given that he was a year young for that age group.

The Belvedere product stepped up to deliver for Colin O’Brien’s side at the finals in England,  with his dead ball prowess turning heads. In the group stage, he bagged Ireland’s winning goal against Denmark before opening the scoring in the victory over Bosnia that booked a passage to the quarter-finals.

In a controversial game with Holland, his equaliser ensured the game went to penalties where Ireland went out in shocking fashion when goalkeeper Jimmy Corcoran received a second yellow card for encroaching.

Still only 16, Parrott moved to Spurs full-time in the summer and has jumped up another rung of the ladder, inspiring the U-19 team through the first phase of qualifying for next year’s Euros as well as marking his mark for his new club.
