Pat Parker, Saints centre-half between 1951 and 1959 has sadly passed away on Tuesday 28th. He played 145 games for Saints and despite being a Devonian remained in Southampton after football. The last time I saw Pat was the summer before last when despite being in a wheelchair he came to West Quay for one of Terry Paine's "Suited and Booted" signings. He was so pleased to see his ex-playing colleague. A lovely approachable gentleman, my thoughts go out to his family.

Sad news. As a boy / teenager I lived in the next road to Pat and his family. My brother was a friend of Pat's son. We managed to get Pat to take training with our football team a couple of times - he was brilliant, a natural coach and a very lovely man.

Yes you are right Dave,he tried to get me to go over and play for them.Lovely bloke.RIP Pat.

 

I remember playing against Cowes when they were a decent Hampshire League team

 

Pat Parker was an elder statesman centre half. Quite lanky if I remember correctly and, as mentioned, a real gentleman.

 

Think Cowes played in red & white stripes at the time

 

RIP Pat
