Charlie Phillips

Player #370 for Aston Villa, Cuthbert Phillips, known as Charlie Phillips, played as a winger for the club in the outside right position.

Charlie played for Villa between 1935-36 and 1937-38 making 22 appearances and scoring 5 goals.

Gordon was born in Victoria, Monmouthshire, Wales, on 23 June 1910 and made his debut appearance for Villa on the 1 February 1936 aged 25.

Villa had signed Charlie from Wolverhampton Wanderers for a fee of £9,000 in January 1936 as Villa splashed the cash in an attempt to stave off relegation.

The gamble didn’t work however and despite Charlie hitting 2 goals in 11 appearances, including one on debut, Villa were relegated for the first time in their history.

Charlie stayed with Villa in the second tier and helped build the foundations for Villa to win the second division championship and a return to the top flight with 2 goal in 9 games.

Charlie left the club before promotion was sealed however and played his final game for Villa on 1 January 1938 aged 27 ahead of a move to Birmingham in March 1938.

Charlie had played under managers Jimmy McMullan and Jimmy Hogan.

Charlie passed away in Lichfield on 15th October 1969 aged 59.
