Philip Warner (born 2 February 1979)[3] is a retired English semi-professional football utility player, who played in the Premier League for Southampton. He also played in the Football League for Cambridge United and Brentford. After his release from Cambridge United in 2003, he dropped into non-league football and had a brief spell playing in Australia.

Career[edit]

Southampton[edit]

A utility player, Warner began his career in the youth system at Premier League club Southampton and signed his first professional contract in August 1997.[3] He made his senior debut as a 39th-minute substitute for Jason Dodd in a 1–1 draw with Tottenham Hotspur on 10 May 1998.[4] Warner made six appearances during the 1998–99 season,[5] but failed to appear after October 1998 and departed on loan for the 1999–00 season.[6] Warner returned to the first team squad during the 2000–01 season, but failed to make any further appearances before his release in May 2001.[7]

Brentford (loan)[edit]

On 2 July 1999, Warner joined newly-promoted Second Division club Brentford on a season-long loan, with a view to a permanent move.[6] He made just 15 appearances and returned to The Dell two months early, in March 2000.[8][9]

Cambridge United[edit]

On 31 May 2001, Warner signed a two-year contract with Second Division club Cambridge United on a free transfer.[10] He made just 16 appearances during the 2001–02 season,[11] at the end of which the Us were relegated to the Third Division.[12] Warner was mostly out of favour with manager John Taylor during the first half of the 2002–03 season and was released on 10 January 2003, in a cost-cutting exercise.[13][14] He made 26 appearances during 18 months at the Abbey Stadium.[10]

Non-league football[edit]

On 24 January 2003, Warner dropped into non-league football to join Wessex League club Eastleigh.[2][15] Over the following six years he also would play for Aldershot Town, Eastbourne Borough, Havant & Waterlooville, Bognor Regis Town and Totton, before travelling to Australia and playing for Heidelberg United.[16][17][18][19][20] Warner joined his final club, Poole Town, in 2010 and retired in 2011.[21]

Personal life[edit]

Warner attended Redbridge Community School.[22] As of January 2008, he was living in Bassett and was working as a van driver and property developer.[22] After his retirement from football in 2011, he became a sports masseur.[23][24]
