Anthony "Tony" Parks (born 26 January 1963) is an English former professional footballer who played as a goalkeeper in the Football League for Tottenham Hotspur, Oxford United, Gillingham, Brentford, Fulham, West Ham United, Stoke City, Doncaster Rovers, Scarborough and Halifax Town, and in Scotland for Falkirk.[1][2]

Parks was born in Hackney, London, and began his football career with Tottenham Hotspur.[2] Though never a first-team regular, he was on the winning side in the 1984 UEFA Cup Final, in which he saved the decisive penalty in the shootout.[3] In a career spanning over 20 years, he was on the books of 15 different clubs, making more than 250 league appearances,[1] and had two spells as joint caretaker manager of Halifax Town.[4][5]

After his playing career ended, Parks went on to work as a goalkeeping coach with several clubs and as one of the Football Association's national coaches, working with the England youth teams.[3] In November 2008, he succeeded Hans Leitert as goalkeeping coach for Tottenham Hotspur.[6]
