JUDGEY'S PRAISE FOR TROY

11 February 2021

"He’s got nice touches on the ball and he can bring people into play. I think that’s what the manager is looking for him to do"

Alan Judge says that Troy Parrott has the 'arrogance and belief' to be successful at Town.

Troy joined on loan from Tottenham on deadline day and has impressed in the two games since moving to Portman Road, starting on both occasions.

The teenage forward saw a debut assist for Freddie Sears incorrectly ruled out against Blackpool before his presence played a part in James Norwood's goal at Peterborough in midweek, almost grabbing a late equaliser himself.

Judgey was full of praise for Troy, having also previously featured alongside the Spurs striker for the Republic of Ireland when the latter made his international debut against New Zealand in 2019.

"Troy’s a good lad and a strong boy for his age. He’s only just turned 19," Judgey said on his compatriot.

"I was with him in the Irish team and you can see he’s got that little bit of arrogance about him and that bit of belief.

"He’s got nice touches on the ball and he can bring people into play. I think that’s what the manager is looking for him to do - lay it off and get into the box."
