    I have been reading a lot of good things about the lad this season so I have decided he deserves his own thread.

    I notice also he seems to be a talented free kick taker, well you can never have too much of them. I hope he makes the pre season tour in the summer

    He does look like quite the prospect...

    One of his goals this evening was a free kick too. Special teams?

    Hope the boy is allowed to develop without too much hype, if he works hard, takes onboard all the advise he gets from the coaching staff and avoid all the arseholes who hang around young players he might make it. I hope he does.

    He's very Kane-like in the way he plays - comes short to link play up, can run on to the ball, pass the ball and finish

    I've not been as excited about an Irish youth team forward that I've never seen play since the halcyon days of Terry Dixon

    Lets hope Parrott stays away from walking home from the pub on the roofs of cars

    Who was the Welsh youth striker we had around the same time.

    Christ I hope for the boys sake he manages to avoid the terrible "career" Dixon had.

    I don't remember a Welsh one. There was Alex Olsen, a Norwegian, and Ryan Mason around about that time as strikers

    I remember us all bricking it when West Ham picked Dixon up after his injuries cleared!

    Now 29 and playing for Aylesbury.

    Fern and McVeigh maybe slightly before, but both Irish I think.
    Also can’t think of a welsh one!

    Gerard McMahon, early 90’s, Northern Irish lad billed as a cross between Gazza and Lineker. Needless to say he didn’t quite get to that level!

    No this was long before Mason. Same time as Owen Price and Michael Malcom were knocking about

    I remember being excited about this lad. He scored a cracker for Northern Ireland once where he took a cross on his chest, knee'd it up and then scored an overhead kick! Credit to anyone that can find it, I tried a few times over the years.

    Thwaite, something like that, we paid half a million for a young welsh 16 year old striker back in the early noughties.
