On 12 May 2012 when he was voted Crystal Palace player of the year for the 2011–12 season, due to his work-ethic and his great fitness. Parr started the 2012–13 season well, and made the left back position his own in Dougie Freedman's team. After Freedman's acrimonious departure from Selhurst Park in October, Parr's place in the starting XI was never under threat. New manager Ian Holloway had to also deploy him in the right fullback position because of injuries. Parr's season ended in April against Ipswich Town after damaging ligaments in his ankle.
