Goalkeeper Steve Phillips won’t be relinquishing the number one role at Crewe Alexandra without a fight.

“I’ll always want to be number one” – Steve Phillips

Despite also currently coaching the club’s other goalkeepers, Phillips, 35, will once again be looking to fend off the challenges from the likes of Alan Martin and recent debutant Ben Garratt and retain his own starting place.

“It won’t be easy to take my number one shirt,” Phillips warned the Crewe Chronicle. “I’ll be doing my best to make sure the boss picks me.

“I’ll always want to be number one,” he added. “You have to have competition but I’ve been good at blocking it out over the course of my career.”
