Club Career

Club(s) After being rejected at Southampton FC after becoming an apprentice at right-back, he began his football career with Baldock FC in 1991. Manager Ian Allinson moved him up front and soon his goalscoring was noticed by Watford FC, who signed Phillips for an eventual £30,000 on 19 December 1994. He scored 24 goals in 59 league appearances, that also saw him take a year out with a foot injury. A £325,000+ deal took Kevin to Sunderland AFC on 17 July 1997. He helped the Wearsiders return to the Premiership, scoring 113 goals in 208 league appearances, despite interest from Arsenal FC and Tottenham Hotspur FC. After the Black Cat's relegation back into the Championship, Phillips joined Southampton FC on 14 August 2003 for £3.25 million. Again, after relegation and 64 Premiership appearances, scoring 22 goals, Phillips joined Aston Villa FC for £1 million on 29 June 2005. He played just 23 Premiership matches, scoring four goals, before he signed with West Bromwich Albion FC for £700,000 on 22 August 2007, making 71 Championship appearances, scoring 38 goals. He helped the club gain promotion to the Premiership, but preferring to stay in the Championship, Phillips signed for Birmingham City FC on 5 August 2008, helping them to gain promotion to the Premiership also after his first season. But in his second season, City were relegated back into the Championship and Phillips was released after 69 league appearances and nineteen goals. On 10 July 2011, Phillips signed for Blackpool FC, and made 56 Championship appearances scoring eighteen goals, before he followed his manager to Crystal Palace FC on loan on 31 January 2013. After securing promotion to the Premiership, five days short of his fortieth birthday, Phillips signed a year long contract with Palace, but he left in January 2014. He made eighteen league appearances, scoring six goals.
