Crewe Alexandra’s experienced goalkeeper Steve Phillips is contemplating retirement at the end of the season.

“It might be that I stay and be goalkeeper coach full-time” – Steve Phillips

The 35-year-old already has more than
six hundred senior games to his credit during a career that has also taken in spells at both Bristol clubs. However, a shoulder injury has restricted him to the sidelines since October.

“It might be that I get back and I can be one of the goalies here next year,” Phillips told BBC Sport. “It might be that I stay and be goalkeeper coach for Steve [Davis] full-time.

“Do I coach and not play at all? Or do I coach and still play on Saturday for someone non-league at a decent standard?,” he asked. “I look forward to the next part of my journey. The last 18 or 20 years has been a rollercoaster and think the next two or three will be a rollercoaster as well.”
