Goalkeeper Steve Phillips won’t require surgery having been given the all-clear from his consultant.

“If you can ever avoid an operation then you should” – Steve Davis

The 35-year-old has been struggling with
a shoulder problem and an operation
could have prematurely ended his season.

“Steve doesn’t need to have surgery on his shoulder and that is good news for him and good news for us,” manager Steve Davis confirmed to Crewe’s official website. “If you can ever avoid an operation then you should and that means he will be available for us again this season. If he would have had an operation then he could have been out for months with the rehab needed.”

The vastly-experienced Phillips has already made in excess of six hundred senior appearances while also having spells at both Bristol clubs and weekend opponents Shrewsbury Town.
