Parry Wants To Prove Point To Cardiff City

Parry Wants To Prove Point To Cardiff City

Cardiff City host Preston at the CCS on Saturday and will welcome back a former player in the shape of winger Paul Parry - who left the Bluebirds to join PNE in a £300k deal over the summer.

Prior to the move, Parry was the longest serving Bluebirds player, not counting Joe Ledley who had yet to break into the first team squad when Parry arrived for £75k from Hereford United.

A pacy winger, able to beat his man - Paul Parry was a good player for Cardiff City and contributed to some good seasons. He also played a vital role up-front when we had a chronic lack of pace in the Hasselbaink / Fowler era. He caused serious problems for the Portsmouth defence in the FA Cup final and if he'd been fully fit....who knows?!? However, he never was a favourite of Dave Jones and was regularly used on the right wing rather than his favoured left.

Parry also had a peculiar relationship with the fans, amid some inconsistent form in a mis-shapen Bluebirds midfield. He, along with Whittingham and McPhail were the targets for frustrated fans while his bizarre on/off daliance with the Wales squad did not help his rapport. He retired from International football, after missing numerous trips through personal circumstances and failing to feature when he did turn up.

Parry is adamant he made the right decision to leave, but is determined to prove a point on his return. If he was still at the Bluebirds, Parry would likely be on the bench behind Chris Burke with Whittingham, McCormack and Etuhu in pole positions for the left wing berth.
