Parish News

Elliot Parish is "a find for us" according to England U20 coach Brian Eastwick. Parish, who has featured sporadically for the Aston Villa reserve side and was a named squad member in the Peace Cup tournament acquitted himself well as the starting goalkeeper for the U-20 World Cup, even showing versatility as a make-shift striker (which I`m sure MON will love!)

Lavish was the Parish praise during the 1-0 defeat to Uruguay, 4-0 defeat at the hands of Ghana and 1-1 draw against Uzbekistan. In that final match against the Uzbeks, in the dying moments the ball did fall to the youngster…in the oppositions penalty area however he sadly smashed his effort over the bar.

Eastwick, on Parish:

"I think one player in particular to come out with some credit is Elliot Parish, who hasn't been involved in the international set-up before,' said the England coach.
"He's come in and acquitted himself really well in the three games he's played.
"So I think there's a find there for us, we've got another goalkeeper who we can consider for the international squads in the future.'


Elliot Parish

Must admit personally I know very little about Elliot Parish, but rave reviews like this surely do question the sanity of signing Andy Marshall if he is so ably equipped to step into big occasions. That said, I guess he could be a replacement for the seemingly outgoing Emile Heskey?

Is a Guzan/Parish future er, the future? Well why not have your say?

It would be nice if we kept one of these young, upcoming keepers with a bucket load of potential and maybe loaned them out for a few years instead of just selling them to a lower league club

Couple of outstanding points Yatesy! Murph did warn me he was going to go random as I'd not got a picture of Elliot in the admin. Have now added one and put one in the article though!
