Academy Watch Done Deal

Second player flees the nest

This week has seen the news break across twitter, that Dean Gary Parrett, has left spurs and has already played in a competitive match for Crystal Palace U21’s against Bolton Wanderers following his release. Reading a few reports it seems as though Dean impressed, this will be the second young English player to be confirmed as leaving White Hart Lane this close season, after i revealed last week that Nathan Bryne had agreed to leave Tottenham on the expiration of his contract and join loan club Swindon Town on a permanent deal this summer.

Dean whose contract expires this summer, and had expected to be released by spurs albeit some impressive performances for the spurs u21’s side campaign, especially netting twice at the Hawthorns in a 0-4 victory.

Parrett has represented England at many youth levels and made his Spurs debut shortly after joining in a Europa League tie against Ukrainian side Shaktar Donetsk on the 19th February 2009.

Dean who joined spurs at the age of 15 from Queens Park Rangers, also had a host of Loan spells whilst with the club with mixed response at Swindon, Yeovil, Charlton, Plymouth and Aldershot.

Dean follows another English youngster who was tipped for big things when moving to Spurs for more than £1 Million in Leigh Mills, hopefully Dean has a brighter further in the game that Mills did, now 25 he is currently unattached following his release from conference south side Eastleigh.

Dean comes from a family of spurs fans, his mum Kalitsa regularly interacting on Facebook and Twitter with updates on Deans career and pictures of the spurs youth team, matches and tournaments they have participated in. Dean is engaged to Nikki Pritchard the sister of young spurs player Alex Pritchard.

We at lillywhiterose wish Dean all the best for the future and hope to see him and his family of spurs fans at White Hart Lane in the not to distant future.

John Wenham.
