Crewe Alexandra goalkeeper Steve Phillips admits that he has been considering his future beyond the end of this season.

Crewe Alexandra goalkeeper Steve Phillips has admitted that he is thinking about retiring from football at the end of the season.

The 35-year-old, who joined Crewe from Shrewsbury Town in 2010, has not featured since October due to a shoulder injury.

"I'm out of contract and sort of thinking about next year - do I still continue to play at a professional level?" he told BBC Radio Stoke.

"It might be that I get back and I can be one of the goalies here next year. It might be that I stay and be goalkeeper coach for Steve [Davis] full-time.

"I look forward to the next part of my journey. The last 18 or 20 years has been a rollercoaster and think the next two or three will be a rollercoaster as well."

Phillips has also played for Bristol City and Bristol Rovers.
