IRELAND YOUNGSTER TROY Parrott opened his account in senior football to seal the victory for Ipswich Town in today’s League One fixture at home to Plymouth Argyle.

It’s a monkey off the back for the 19-year-old attacker, who was making his 10th appearance for the Tractor Boys since joining them on loan from Tottenham Hotspur.

Parrott made the switch to Portman Road on 1 February, having spent the first half of the season with Championship side Millwall.

He capitalised on a loose pass played across the face of goal by Plymouth’s Adam Lewis, before rounding goalkeeper Mike Cooper and slotting home the only goal of the game in the fourth minute.

The result pushes Ipswich into the play-off places as they aim to return to the second tier of English football.
