Parker voted England Player of the Year

Tottenham midfielder Scott Parker has been voted the Vauxhall England Player of the Year, reports the FA.

Parker, 31, has only ten senior caps for England, having been passed over until late in his career. However, his resurgence in the twilight of his career has seen him become a mainstay of the current England squad, and he was named man of the match in the recent 1-0 friendly victory over Spain. The award, which was voted for by England fans on the FA’s official website, saw him garner 17% of the 15,000 votes cast, with Joe Hart coming in second place and Ashley Young in third.

Speaking to the FA’s official website, Parker said: “It’s a great honour – just looking at the names that are on the trophy it’s quite an achievement. It’s been a good year for me at international level so I’m delighted the fans have picked me.”

Parker, who was sent off in this weekend’s North London Derby, has also been in fine form for Spurs this season, and has become an integral part of the team since joining in August, making 22 appearances so far this season.
