Player Profile

Charlton Athletic

Scott Parker was born in Lambeth, London and attended Haberdashers' Aske's Hatcham College in New Cross Gate. He is a graduate of the FA's, now defunct, national school of excellence at Lilleshall. After graduating he signed for Charlton Athletic and made his debut as a substitute against Bury in the first division on 1997-08-23, a game which ended 0-0. He signed his first professional contract with the club two months later. Over the next couple of years he made only a few sporadic substitute appearances for Charlton, although he was one of the brightest prospects in English football.

In October 2000 Charlton, now in the Premier League, loaned Parker to First Division side Norwich City F.C. for two months to give the England under-21 some first team experience. On his return to The Valley Parker was immediately called into the first team to replace injured captain Mark Kinsella. Parker played so well for Charlton that, upon his return from injury, Kinsella could not regain his place in the starting lineup.

Parker soon became the linchpin of Charlton's midfield, combining tenacious tackling with an ability to carry the ball quickly from defence to attack and play telling passes, creating many chances for his teammates. There was talk that the Addicks would mount a serious challenge for Champions League qualification. It was not long before England manager Sven-Göran Eriksson gave Parker his international debut.

Chelsea

Parker, who had been consistently linked with moves away from Charlton for several years, finally left the Valley on 2004-01-30 to join Chelsea for a fee of £10m, after a protracted and acrimonious transfer saga in which Parker is rumoured to have refused to train for Charlton. Parker was initially signed as cover for Claude Makélélé and Frank Lampard, but played most of his games for Chelsea as a winger. He scored his only goal for Chelsea against Portsmouth at Fratton Park. Within just two months of signing for Chelsea, he made another substitute appearance for England on 2004-03-31, this time against Sweden.

Following the summer signings of Arjen Robben, and Tiago, Parker's first team opportunities were extremely limited during the 2004-05 season. His problems were compounded when he broke a metatarsal bone in a game against his former club, Norwich City. This injury, coupled with the signing of Jiří Jarošík, served to add to the rumours that he would be sold by José Mourinho in the summer.

Newcastle United

Parker was indeed sold the following summer, moving to Newcastle United on June 15, 2005 for a fee of £6.5m. A move to Everton had stalled previously due to wage demands. Still, he did end his association with Chelsea with a League Cup winner's medal.

Since joining Newcastle, Parker has once again become a first-team regular in the Premiership. He has been one of the few players at the club to have shown any consistency during an often difficult season; Newcastle finished in 7th place, despite having a very poor start under Graeme Souness.

In March 2006 he was diagnosed with glandular fever, putting an end to his season. Indeed, it turned out that Parker had played two games with the condition, showing his incredible drive and durability once again. The timing was especially unfortunate for Parker, who had been playing well for Newcastle, as it ended any hopes he may have had of forcing his way into the England squad for the 2006 FIFA World Cup.

On 14 July 2006 he was named Newcastle United's new captain by manager Glenn Roeder. His first goal as captain came against Wigan Athletic on 19 August 2006. Parker scored his second goal of the season against Fulham on 9 September 2006. Ironically, it was when he was substituted, that Newcastle conceded 2 goals and subsequently lost the game. Despite Newcastle's poor form, he has excelled on the pitch. His impressive performances earned him a recall to the England squad on September 29, after an absence of more than two years. On 7 November Parker made a lung bursting run to score a goal in the 116th minute against Watford in the Carling Cup. He then scored in the penalty shoot-out, to allow Newcastle to progress in the competition. He scored his 4th goal of the 2006-07 season season against Tottenham on 2006-12-23.

Scott Parker Newcastle United Profile (NUFC Player Profiles) (1528 words)
But Scott’s football career had yet to take off and he was to remain one of football’s best kept secrets for a few more years yet, making only random appearances in the Addicks first-team.
Parker was flung straight into the first-team and his spell at Carrow Road seemed to have worked wonders, going on to make a further 20 appearances that year for Charlton and establishing himself in the side.
Scott never had a chance to cement his place in the centre of midfield for Chelsea and was constantly deployed on the right-wing.
