Phil Warner is an English right-back/midfielder who was born in Southampton on 2nd February 1979. Warner began his career at his hometown club, making his first team debut for Saints on 10th May 1998 as a substitute for Jason Dodd in the final day 1-1 draw at Tottenham. He was involved in early season matches during 1998/99, but struggled to cope with the demands of Premier League football. On 17th October 1998 he was substituted after just 34 minutes, having suffered a torrid afternoon up against Arsenal's Marc Overmars. That was Warner's final appearance in a Southampton shirt. He was still on the books at The Dell until 2001, spending 1999/2000 on loan Division 2 side Brentford. Warner failed to make much of an impression at Griffin Park, with most of his outings coming as a substitute.
In August 2001 Warner signed for Cambridge United of Division 2. He spent just one unremarkable season at the club before drifting into non-league. Warner played for local side Eastleigh in 2003/04, before moving up to the Conference with Aldershot in 2004/05. The former Saints man has since had spells with Eastbourne, Havant and Waterlooville and Totton.
