We have completed the loan signing of Wycombe Wanderers wide player Connor Parsons on a deal until 29 January.
The former Norwich City youngster arrived at Adams Park following a successful trial in the summer, joining up with their B team and going on to feature in three Papa John’s Trophy matches, scoring once.
Before joining the League One outfit Parsons had worked hard to bounce back from his Carrow Road departure, playing in non-league and spending time with Icelandic side Dalvik.
And Ian Burchnall believes the 21-year-old will be a lively addition to our squad.
“With Aaron Nemane being out for a little while, we’ve moved quickly to try and replace that attacking threat in the wide area,” said the head coach.
“We’ve been really unfortunate with illness and injury in recent weeks so to get an extra body in is massive.
“I’ve known Wycombe’s B team coach, Sam Grace, for a long while and we’ve always spoken about players, so Connor has been on our radar. He fits the mould of what we’re looking for right now.
“He’s played a lot of minutes at wing back for Wycombe, mostly down the left but, as he’s right footed, he can go either side.
“Wycombe have got a really good system with their B team and they’re bringing through some talented youngsters. The fact they took Connor on shows there’s a lot of potential there, so we’re really happy to get him on board.”
