Biography

Fulham signed midfielder Scott Parker from Tottenham Hotspur for an undisclosed fee on 19th August 2013.

Born in Lambeth, London, Parker made his name at Charlton Atheltic as a youngster and was famously filmed for a McDonald’s advert doing keep-ups at the age of 13. Making his debut for Charlton as a 16-year-old in 1997, he quickly signed his first professional contract but didn’t establish himself in the first team until 1999/2000 when he made 18 appearances and scored one goal as Charlton returned to the top flight.

Graduating to the England Under-21 setup, he chose a loan move to Norwich City to get more experience and impressed enough upon his return to dislodge Mark Kinsella from the Addicks midfield. He became a fixture in the side, made his debut for the senior England team and proved he could play at the highest level with a number of eye-catching displays until he left for Chelsea in January 2004.

Staying only 18 months in West London, he was named PFA Young Player of the Year at the end of the 2003/04 campaign but didn’t get a chance to play in his favoured position in 2004/05 and, despite claiming a Premier League winners’ medal, he moved from Stamford Bridge to Newcastle United that summer.

During two seasons at St James' Park, his tough tackling and never-say-die attitude saw him become a fans’ favourite and he rose to captain the side, leading them to UEFA Intertoto Cup glory before heading back to London again to take on a new challenge with West Ham United in June 2007.

Named West Ham’s Player of the Year for three consecutive seasons, he continued to impress in midfield and made 129 appearances – taking the honour of Football Writers' Association Footballer of the Year in 2011 and captaining England the following year.

On the final day of the summer transfer window in 2011, Parker signed for Tottenham and made 62 appearances for the side before choosing another London club, Fulham, to take his career onwards.

In his debut campaign at the Club, Parker made 32 appearances and scored twice - the pick of which was a late screamer against Norwich City to earn his side a 2-1 win at Carrow Road.

Ahead of the 2014/15 campaign, Parker was named Club Captain and went on to feature 41 times, impressing sufficiently to finish fourth in our Player of the Season vote.

Ankle surgery ruled him out of the majority of the first half of the following season, but he returned in November and went on to make 24 appearances. His performances helped Fulham secure safety, and he was subsequently rewarded with a one-year extension to his contract.
