NEWS | Phillips heads off to Senior World Cup

Head of Goalkeeping joins Three Lions in Thailand

30 May 2018

Town's Head of Goalkeeping Steve Phillips will look to help England Veterans pick up the Senior World Cup for a third consecutive year in June.

The 40-year-old, who's been part of the last two successful cup campaigns, will once again join up with the Three Lions in Thailand. 

The tournament was set up in 2006 after the devastating tsunami that hit the country with the aim of helping to rebuild tourism after the disaster - and provide additional football coaching for underprivileged children.

Away from the footballing action, teams spend time with local children both in the classroom and outside for coaching sessions.

Having won the tournament in 2016 and 2017, England will be looking to make it three in a row this year.

All at YTFC wish Steve all the best during his time away at the Senior World Cup.
