Parker tops supporters’ poll
Lock Kristian Parker has been nominated as Player of the Season 2019-2020 by Pontypridd supporters.
In an on-line poll Parker edged out winger Dale Stuckey for the accolade, reflecting on the two players’ fine form and consistency throughout the campaign.
In his first full season with Pontypridd Kristian Parker made 18 appearances, all of those being in the starting line-up – more starts than any other of the squad.
His abrasive style of play, his versatility in covering both the second and back row positions, and his willingness to put his body on the line time and again were the attributes that made such an impression on the Ponty support.
Hailing from Church Village, Parker had previously played for Ebbw Vale in the Premiership before making the move closer home to Pontypridd. It was a move that certainly paid dividends for club and player, as reflected in his well deserved Player of the Season award.
A close second for the accolade, flying winger Dale Stuckey had made 17 appearances during the season and was top try scorer with a tally of 8.
