Philip Hough (born 31 August 1924) is a former English cricketer. Hough was a right-handed batsman who bowled leg break googly. He was born at Macclesfield, Cheshire.

Hough made his Minor Counties Championship debut for Cheshire in 1949 against Staffordshire. From 1949 to 1959, he represented the Cheshire and the Lancashire Second XI in a combined total of 36 Minor Counties Championship matches, the last of which came against Northumberland.

In 1962, Savin joined Wiltshire, where he made his Minor Counties Championship debut for the county against Dorset. From 1962 to 1966, he represented the county in 12 Championship matches, the last of which came against Dorset.[1]
