Parratt was born in Inverness, Scotland, but moved to the United States with his family at the age of three. He grew up in Iowa City, Iowa, attended Iowa City High School, and played club football for Iowa City Alliance, where his father Ian is Director of Coaching, and attended the US National U-14 training camp.
At the age of 15, Parratt moved to England to join Birmingham City, and after a year's acclimatisation began a three-year scholarship programme with Birmingham's Academy. During his time with Birmingham he played for the Scotland under-19 team.
Inverness Caledonian Thistle
Released by Birmingham at the end of the 2004–05 season, Parratt returned to the place of his birth to join Inverness Caledonian Thistle of the Scottish Premier League (SPL) on a two-and-a-half-year contract. He was primarily used as a substitute, and made his debut as a second-half substitute in the Scottish League Cup against Alloa Athletic.
Released by the club at the end of the 2005–06 season, he signed for Hamilton Academical in August 2006, and established himself as the club's first-choice right back. The following year he was an integral part of the impressive 2007–08 season title winning team, and part of a defence that only conceded three goals at home the entire season.
Queen of the South
On 27 August 2008 Parratt joined First Division side Queen of the South of Dumfries. He made his debut playing in the 3–1 home league defeat of Dundee on 30 August. He left Queen of the South at the end of January 2009 wishing to pursue options elsewhere.
Wilmington re-signed Parratt for the 2012 season on 13 February 2012.
