78 Phil Chambers
Phil is the furthest right of the front three
Position : Left back
Played : 1985-6
Appearances : 10
Goals : 0
Phil was a short-term signing to cover at left back while Dave Grant covered Keith Hick's absence through injury in the centre. Now 31 Phil had given fantastic service to Barnsley over 15 seasons where he was known as Chippy either for his left foot or his somewhat rotund figure- sources vary ! He is also sometimes listed as Phil Martin-Chambers.
Phil turned out to be a very solid and tidy full back who was good value for his 10 games. He moved on to Hartlepool where he played 29 games to the end of the season before joining the coaching staff at Rotherham. He was briefly manager of Scarborough in 1993.
