The nineteen-year-old made his senior debut on the final day of last season and maintained a clean-sheet as the Alex’s young lions eased past the challenge of Walsall 2-0 at Gresty Road.
“Ben is unrecognisable to the keeper he was a year ago,” Phillips told This is Staffordshire. “He has worked tremendously hard on his positioning, kicking and his strength. He’s big and tough, not just tall.
“We’ve not had a keeper come through the ranks here before so it is promising,” he continued. “I’m not saying he’s going to play for Manchester United, but he’s got a good chance of being Crewe’s keeper for a long, long time.”
