He made his first league appearance the following January, playing the full game and impressing fans in a goalless draw with Norwich City at Selhurst Park.
He joined Barnet on loan in March 2011. The following season Parsons went on to play six times in all competitions for Crystal Palace and on 30 August 2012, he joined Wycombe Wanderers on loan for an initial one month youth loan deal, making 4 appearances. Come the 17th January 2014, Parsons joined Plymouth Argyle for an undisclosed fee until the end of the 2013–14 season where he played on 10 occasions.
