Former Blues Full-Back Parr Retires
Monday, 24th Jan 2022 17:00
Former Blues full-back Jonny Parr has retired from the game at the age of 33 due to a knee injury
The Norwegian joined Town on a free transfer in the summer of 2014 after leaving Crystal Palace.
He went on to make 29 starts and 14 sub appearances, scoring three times, before moving on to Strømsgodset back in his home country in January 2016 and remained there until his retirement.
“Fortunately, my most serious injury came late in my career,” he told TV2. “It was too great a risk to push it more.”
The nine-times-capped Norwegian international, who has a master’s in economics, is now set to work full-time as growth manager with Rebil, a start-up who sell used cars online, having previously been with them in a part-time capacity.
Meanwhile, a Town development side beat Wycombe Wanderers 2-0 in a behind-closed-doors friendly at Adams Park this afternoon.
