Philip Damian Power (born 25 July 1967 in Salford) is an English football manager and former professional footballer who played in the Football League, as a forward. He was most recently manager at Salford City,[1] and was recently featured in the BBC documentary, Class of '92: Out of Their League.

Playing career[edit]

While playing for Northwich Victoria, he played in the 1984 FA Trophy Final at Wembley Stadium, picking up a winners medal.

He moved to Sliema Wanderers in 1988 and helped them finish 2nd in the Maltese Premier League. He moved to back to England before they played their UEFA Cup first round tie against Victoria Bucureşti.

During his time with Chorley, he almost signed for AFC Bournemouth, then managed by Harry Redknapp before a leg injury kept him out of action for almost 2 years.[2]

During his career, he was managed by famous names such as Dario Gradi at Crewe Alexandra, and former Manchester United and Northern Ireland winger Sammy McIlroy at Macclesfield Town, where he again won the FA Trophy in 1996, against his former club Northwich Victoria.[3]
