The front man, who now is a coach with Maiden City Soccer Academy, won the Irish League top division in memorable fashion in 2005 as Glentoran pipped old rivals Linfield to the secure the Gibson Cup.
Parkhouse, who won a host of other honours throughout the rest of his career, goes for a attacking 4-3-3 formation, so here's his best 11 players he played with and the reasons why....
1. Brian Murphy
Brian Murphy (Goalkeeper - Manchester City): Brian's distribution from his feet was unbelievable and he also was a good all round keeper. He played at Man City, QPR, Cardiff, Bohemians and is currently playing with Waterford.
2. Colin Nixon
Colin Nixon (Right-Back - Glentoran): Colin is a serial winner. He was one of the great Irish League defender's, who was just as good at getting forward. He is also a good guy away from the pitch and we got on well at the Glens.
3. Shaun Holmes
Shaun Holmes (Left-Back - Glentoran): Homer is my closest friend in the game. We have been together through so much of our career, from Don Boscos to Man City to Institute. He had a superb left-peg and he could play in a number of positions.
4. Peter Hutton
Peter Hutton (Centre-Back - Derry City): Peter Hutton, led by example on and off the pitch. He did not say much but had the respect when he did. He is another player who was versatile and read the game so well.
