Don’t waste you’re money in Superdrug…. just put lemon juice on each night….”
361 games a Reading over 11 years, 2 X player of the season and inducted into the Best Ever Reading XI

Straight into being a manager from Reading…. he’s been at the helm at Colchester, Hull, Charlton, Bradford and Bolton – some fraught gigs there?

SAFCBlog is delighted to welcome him as our new manager. He’s the right appointment at the right time? He’s been round the block, whilst SAFCBlog loved Jack Ross…. the job/club was perhaps ultimately too big for him? And anyone who can get Charlie Wyke to score 20 goals a season gets my vote!

Parkinson has also won a play off final at Wembley….. (please God no!!!!!!)
