Staggered Parker collects FWA award

Scott Parker admitted he was "staggered" to have collected the 2011 Football Writers' Association Footballer of the Year Award.

In what was one of the closest contests of recent seasons, Parker topped the poll of journalists ahead of Tottenham defender Gareth Bale.

The England international - who started his career at Charlton before spells with Chelsea and Newcastle ahead of joining the Irons in 2007 - was guest of honour as he collected the prestigious accolade, which has been running since 1948, at a gala dinner at the Lancaster London Hotel on May 12.
