Mark Ian Phillips (born 2 September 1982, Lambeth) is a professional footballer who plays for Kingstonian as a defender.[2][3]

Career[edit]

Phillips was signed as a youth player for Millwall at age 13 and first appeared with the senior team in September 2001.[4] He suffered from frequent injuries and notched up just 67 league appearances during his seven years at Millwall, scoring once against Sheffield United.[5] He was released at the end of the 2007–08 season.

Phillips signed a one-year deal for Brentford on 14 August 2008,[6] after a successful trial spell and played regularly for the first team after James Wilson's loan had expired.[7] He ended up being an important member of the Brentford League Two winners squad and signed a new contract at the conclusion of the 2008–09 season.[8] He scored his first and only goal for the club in a 1–1 draw with Notts County.[7]

He was released by Brentford on 11 May 2010, along with three other players.[9]

Phillips trialled with League Two side Southend United in July 2010.[10] On 31 July, Phillips signed a pre-contract agreement for Southend United.[10] On 4 August 2010, Southend's transfer embargo was lifted and Phillips signed a two-year contract.[11]

Phillips started Southend's first game of the season against Stockport County on 7 August 2010 and on 14 August 2010 against Aldershot Town.[12] Since then Phillips has been plagued by groin injuries which required surgery.[13] In January 2011 Phillips returned to full training.

In 2011–12, Phillips regained his place in the starting XI for Southend and formed a solid partnership at centre back with club captain Chris Barker.[14] Despite a few small injuries, Phillips has remained a permanent fixture in the Blues back four and was named captain for the abandoned game against Aldershot on Boxing Day 2011.[14] At the end of the 2011–12 season, Phillips was named Player of the year down to his frequent strong performances.[15]

On 27 March 2014, Phillips joined Conference side Aldershot Town on loan for the remainder of the 2013–14 season.[16]

On 23 June 2014, Phillips joined AFC Wimbledon on a free transfer.[17]

Phillips re-joined Aldershot Town on loan on 3 October 2014.[11]
