One of the Republic of Ireland’s most promising young prospects has signed his first contract with Tottenham.
Troy Parrott has put pen to paper on a deal that will see him play with Spurs’ Under-18 squad.
Parrott scored three times in Ireland’s UEFA Under-17 campaign in England earlier in the year.
“Everyone has done their off-season programmes, the technical levels have been good and now we’re trying to build and improve every day,” said Under-18s coach Matt Wells of his ten new recruits.
“The standards we’ve set have been high and now it’s about building up to our week in Belgium [for an annual training camp]. Over the last few days we’ve started to do more decision-making practices, more possession drills, more games and started to emphasise the style of play.
“Our new first-years had a very good season last year in the Under-16s, so they’ve got a good base in that regard. Now we’re looking at the individuals and seeing how we can stretch and improve them.”
