Cooper Signs Parnaby

Manager Colin Cooper has today added his second signing of the season to the playing squad, as versatile Stuart Parnaby has joined on.

Following quickly on the heels of defender Matthew Bates, 31 year old Parnaby, who can play in any position in the defence or midfield, has now joined us as a free agent following his release by Middlesbrough in his second spell with them.

Having come through their Academy ranks, he went on to make more than 100 appearances for them, following his debut in a League Cup match against Macclesfield Town in 2000.

He gained further experience in a loan spell at Halifax later that season, but on his return to the Riverside Stadium, he continued his good progress and played a key part in their Premier League campaign of 2004-05 and more than played his part in their FA Cup Final run, and their UEFA Cup Final run the following season.

He ended his time with them in 2007 and moved onto newly promoted Premier League side Birmingham City, and was in the squad when they surprisingly defeated Arsenal in the League Cup Final in 2011.

In his time with them he made over 50 appearances, and then returned to his home in 2012, making a further 21 appearances for the club before being released this summer by Aitor Karanka.

His career stats read 170 starting appearances across all competitions, with a further 45 appearances from the bench, with a return of five goals.
