Former Stalybridge Celtic manager Paul Phillips has signed on player terms for Evo-Stik Premier strugglers Marine.

Following his dismissal from Celtic, Phillips spent a brief period with Colne but has now opted to join the Mariners who sit 20th in the table and four points above the relegation zone.

Upon announcing his decision to join the club, Phillips told Marine’s official website: “I’m glad to come into a club that I’ve always enjoyed playing at when visiting there for other teams.

“A club with great tradition and pedigree in non-league.

“I hope with myself and some of the lads Tommy and Sully have already brought in we can get the team back up to the right end of the league where it deserves.”
