Ex - Chelsea Goalkeeper John Phillip Dies Aged 65 by Nobody: 7:24pm On Mar 31, 2017
English Premier League side, Chelsea have confirmed the death of one of their former goal keepers, John Philips.

Philips died at the age of 65 after a long illness and the Blues remembered the heroics of the shot stopper on Friday.

In a statement posted on their official website on Friday, Chelsea wrote: "We send our deepest condolences to John’s family and friends at this difficult time.

"Phillips was one of the club’s goalkeepers for almost the entire 1970s and although for much of that time he was behind the great Peter Bonetti when it came to team selection, there was a period when he was the clear number one choice and in total he played 149 games for the Blues, including on some big nights in the victorious European Cup Winners’ Cup campaign of 1970/71."

Born in Shrewsbury, Phillips did not follow his family trend slightly as he opted to be a goalkeeper with his hometown club rather than an outfield player, as had been the case for his father and grandfather.
