Barry Philips joined Spurs as a fourteen year old goalkeeper and progressed through the ranks to the reserve team.

Playing alongside team-mates who went on to make the first team, Barry's high-point was the South-East Counties Division Two League Cup final, which won him a trophy (see below) for beating Chelsea.

With more experienced keeper blocking his path to the first team, Philips moved on to Peterborough United and then West Ham United, but could not break through, so played Isthmian League football for Cheshunt.

Later Barry won a Sunday League Cup Final with Carlton United.

Now works on the THFC Match day staff in the tunnel area of the ground.

What Barry Philips said about ...
... his time at Spurs ...  2014

"I recently read an article on the Spurs website about Alfie Conn and his last game for Spurs v Hereford United in a reserve match in 1977.  I played in goal that day for Spurs having risen through the junior and youth team ranks as a fourteen year old. As I remember we won the game 2-0 that day and Ron Henry (our coach at the time) was there along with Peter Shreeves, who came along to watch.

I spent four years in all at Spurs and signed on associated schoolboys forms in 1974. I grew up in North London and have supported Spurs all my life so I was very excited about the prospect of playing for them. During that time I played for the junior, youth and reserve teams with players like Garry Brooke, Mark Falco, Chris Hughton, Paul Miller, Micky Hazard, Steve Walford, Alfie Conn and once with Glenn Hoddle. I was also selected to play for London Youth along with Chris Hughton.

My highlight during my time at Spurs was playing in the second leg of the South East Counties Cup final in 1975-76 against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge after Mark Kendall was injured in the first leg at White Hart Lane. As I recall Mark Falco scored that night.  I remember winning the game 2-0 and getting a bus home after returning to White Hart Lane. We also finished runners up in the league.

Regrettably, I was released after the club signed Mark Kendall as a professional but I went on loan to Peterborough United and after that spent one year at West Ham United but again I wasn't signed as a pro after they signed Mervyn Day.

After that I played non league football for several teams including Cheshunt and reached the FA Sunday Cup final in 1978 playing for a team called Carlton United. I recall Terry Hurlock also played for us and later went on to play for Millwall.

I still see some of my old team mates because for the last twenty seven years I have worked part time at Spurs on Match Days and now work in the tunnel area during home games so I still get to walk out onto the pitch. I will always cherish the days at Spurs and count myself lucky to have represented them and played at White Hart Lane.

Just for the record Spurs always spelt my name with two l's however I only have one."
