A bowling all-rounder, Phillips has always been a solid, if unspectacular, performer in the county game. Phillips spent six seasons at first club Kent, only to leave for Northamptonshire, where he endured a largely unsuccessful short spell. He failed to establish himself as a starter and, subsequently, joined Somerset. Phillips was used considerably more by the south-west county and put in some particularly impressive performances in limited-overs cricket. The spell was to end in 2010, though, as the seamer joined Nottinghamshire on a two-year deal.
