Iran boxing shows at palace and new phil as a great guy and sportsman always happy to help
Phil coached the Royal Artillery team at Woolwich on an ad hoc basis when we played in a triangular competition against the Royal Engineers, the REME and the R Signals usually held at Aldershot. Phil was a real licensure with many great idea to motivate the team. His great sense of humour endeared him to the RA team who responded totally to his coaching methods. I was lucky enough to enjoy Phil's company socially and on away games and he kindly invited my son and I to Brentford and introduced us to Steve Perryman and his many Sisters! He the presented a signed football to my son. Sadly l then left the army and lost touch with Phil but tried to follow his career through Google. Incidentally he was also a smashing golfer and l was reading in a Harry Rednapp book (a man walks on a pitch) when Harry mentioned that Graham Souness had great memories when he joined Spurs and Phil and Steve were the jokers in the pack amongst the younger players.My life and the Roal Artillery benefiting greatly from knowing Phil. I hope that Phil and his family are well and happy.
Don't forget were it started at Percy Road School what a team no one beat us they tried alas they did not i will never forget those games of football fantastic hope I will bump in to you some day Phil.
When I was a boy, my school team was Cardinal Hensley. We used to play against play Phil's team and had some good games. One of the games was a cup final which we won 3-. My name is Patrick Hill and I was the goal keeper.
