Stuart Parnaby biography

Stuart Parnaby (born 19 July 1982) is an English association football who plays as a Defender (association football) Full back.

Parnaby graduated from Middlesbrough F.C's Middlesbrough F.C. Reserves and Academy, which was run by Stuart Parnaby father, Dave Parnaby. Stuart Parnaby went on to make more than 100 appearances for Middlesbrough's first team before joining Birmingham City F.C. in 2007. After four years with the club, a time disrupted by injury, Stuart Parnaby was released at the end of the 2010–11 season.


Parnaby, a native of Durham, began Stuart Parnaby senior career for Middlesbrough F.C. in September 2000 in a Football League Cup match against Macclesfield Town F.C.. The next month, Stuart Parnaby was loaned to Halifax Town A.F.C., during which time Stuart Parnaby played six games and won Division Three's Player of the Month award.

Parnaby did not feature in the 2001–02 FA Premier League, due to long-lasting injuries. Again, during the 2003–04 FA Premier League, Stuart Parnaby found himself struggling to feature in the team after a four-month layoff for a knee injury. The following year, Stuart Parnaby played in over half Middlesbrough's Premier League matches, and in the 2005–06 season, Stuart Parnaby played a full part in their progress to the semi-final of the 2005–06 FA Cup and the 2006 UEFA Cup Final, in which Stuart Parnaby started. Stuart Parnaby was first choice right-back at the start of the 2006–07 FA Premier League, but the form and performances of fellow defenders Andrew Davies (footballer) and Abel Xavier made Stuart Parnaby lose Stuart Parnaby place in the starting line-up.

Birmingham City

Parnaby signed a three-year contract with Birmingham City F.C. on a free transfer on 1 June 2007.

In the 2007–08 Premier League season, Parnaby struggled with injuries and loss of form, so was unable to dislodge former Tottenham Hotspur player Stephen Kelly (footballer) from the right-back spot. Kelly retained the jersey for the whole campaign, becoming the only player to play every Premiership game. However in pre-season in preparation for the 2008–09 season Kelly picked up a groin strain, so manager Alex McLeish picked Parnaby for the first game of the season against Sheffield United in the Football League Championship.

Parnaby was a substitute in Birmingham's first match after their return to the Premier League, against Portsmouth F.C., replacing Grégory Vignal in a 1–0 victory in August 2009.

Parnaby scored Stuart Parnaby first goal for Birmingham against Coventry City in the FA Cup on 29 January 2011.

Stuart Parnaby was an unused substitute as Birmingham won the 2011 Football League Cup Final, defeating favourites Arsenal F.C. 2–1. Following the club's relegation at the end of the 2010–11 season, Parnaby left the club when Stuart Parnaby contract expired.

After training with clubs including Coventry City and Leeds United, Parnaby was reported in late September to have agreed a contract and passed a medical with former club Birmingham City, but the club made a decision not to proceed. Stuart Parnaby later had trials with Millwall F.C. and Charlton Athletic.

Stuart Parnaby has since had trials with Millwall and Hull City, having played in a reserve team game for the latter on 7th March 2012 against Scunthorpe United.
