Philip Carlo Barbon Greatwich (born 21 January 1987) is an English-born Philippine international footballer. He qualifies for that country because his mother Carolina is Filipina.[3] He plays as a full back.

Greatwich was born in Brighton, and began his football career as a schoolboy with Brighton & Hove Albion.[3] Released as a 16-year-old, he made his debut in first-team football for Burgess Hill Town of the Isthmian League Division One South,[4] and won the club's Young Player of the Year award for the 2005–06 season.[5] Greatwich received his first call-up to the senior Philippine national team in October 2006,[6] and played in all three of the Philippines' group matches in the 2007 ASEAN Football Championship finals.[7]

In 2007, he went to the United States to begin a course in Sports Management at Towson University, Maryland, where he played for the Towson Tigers soccer team.[8][9][10]

Greatwich's older brother Chris[7] and younger brother Simon[11] are also Philippines international footballers.
