Parrott is deemed as one of the club’s brightest prospects following his strong start to the season.
He has featured for both the club’s Under-18s and Under-23s sides despite not turning 17 until February.
He has also impressed at youth level for the Republic of Ireland Under-19s having fired them through the first stage of European Championship qualification.
The striker scored four goals in three games as his name continues to rise.
This evening’s trip to the East Midlands is a significant step in his career.
