Goalkeeper Steve Phillips said it meant everything after helping Crewe Alexandra to victory in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy final.

“I love Crewe, this is where I will end my career” – Steve Phillips

The 34-year-old was as expected recalled in place of Alan Martin and proceeded to keep a second consecutive clean sheet at Wembley as the Railwaymen ran out 2-0 winners against Southend United.

“The fans have turned out in droves and I’m glad we had a chance to go up those famous steps again and lift that trophy,” Phillips told the Crewe Chronicle. “I love Crewe, this is where I will end my career.”

Goals at the start of each half from skipper Luke Murphy and Max Clayton proved enough for the Alex to claim the trophy for the first time in their history.
