John Phillips

Player #547 for Aston Villa, Thomas John Seymour Phillips known as John Phillips played as a goalkeeper for the club in 1969-70 making 17 appearances.

John was born in Shrewsbury on 7 July 1951 and he made his debut appearance for Villa on Saturday, 18 October 1969 aged 18.

Villa had signed John from Shrewsbury Town for £35,000 in October 1969 and he became the 65th custodian of the Villa goal in League and Cup football conceding 26 goals in his 17 appearances at a ratio of 1.53 whilst keeping 4 clean sheets.

With all but three of his appearances coming under Tommy Docherty, new boss Vic Crowe used John much more sparingly preferring John Dunn. As a result Phillips made his final appearance for Villa on Saturday, 14 February 1970 aged 18 before moving on to Chelsea in August 1970 for a fee of £30,000 aged 19.

John passed away on 31 March 2017 aged 65
