Hot-shot Kev al­ways used to make Mark!

The Football League Paper - - LEAGUE TWO -

STRIKER Kevin Phillips may have hung up his boots af­ter a goal-laden ca­reer, but he’s still keen to clear up one thing – his mid­dle name isn’t Mark!

The for­mer Eng­land for­ward made his point when pen­ning the fore­word for the new bi­og­ra­phy of his for­mer Wat­ford and West Brom team-mate Paul Robin­son, ‘Robbo – Un­sung Hero’.

The 41-year-old said: “Oh and by the way I do not have a mid­dle name, so where this ‘Mark’ came from I will never know, as none of my rel­a­tives are called Mark but it is used ev­ery­where: Wikipedia, Sky Sports Foot­ball Year­books, Birm­ing­ham City – The Com­plete Record and Birm­ing­ham City – Mod­ern Day He­roes.”

Mean­while, Phillips, now a coach at Le­ices­ter, re­ceived the pres­ti­gious Sir Tom Fin­ney Award at last Sun­day’s 10th an­nual Foot­ball League Awards. It’s pre­sented to a player who has had an out­stand­ing ca­reer in the League.

HON­OURED: Phillips with his tro­phy
