Parish recognises how important Zaha is to the fabric of the club.
He told the Daily Mail, "We've got a star player raised locally.
"We've got a manager born locally who supported the club when he was a kid and, so he tells me, was on the terraces when we were fighting to stay in the third Division North or something.
"And I got to be there, too. I got to be chairman these past 10 years of the club I supported as a boy. What an incredible privilege that feels for me. I've never felt more connected to this place."
