Born and raised in the Taita and Naenae area I have been a long time member of Avalon Rugby Club. More recently I have worn many hats including Rugby Development Officer (5 years), colts coach and in 2022 I played my 100th premier game for the club. I am also a proud member of Taita Cricket Club, another founding member of Fraser Park Sportsville.
Outside sport, I graduated Victoria University in 2014 and hold a BComm in Accounting and Marketing. I am now a Senior Public Health Advisor for Te Whatu Ora.
I have a passion for community and health and am committed to advocating for equitable outcomes for Fraser Park Sportsville.
I've been a member of LHCAFC ever since I moved to Lower Hutt from the UK in 2005, as a player (still, just), coach, referee and currently serving as an executive committee member. Last year I was invited onto the FPS board as one of the two directors appointed by the founding member clubs. I have worked closely with the FPS team, the Board Chair, and other board members to navigate FPS through the Covid crisis and representing the board on the subsequent working group.
I am a contract project manager by profession working in government, local government, and emergency service sectors specialising in IT Infrastructure and telecommunications
Phil joined the board last year as a club appointed representative nominated by Hutt City Squash. As a consequence of having been involved with the Fraser Park Squash Club’s association with FPS since it was first announced, he felt it was important the Board had knowledge and an understanding of the expectations and undertakings provided to the clubs during the 10-year process of developing FPS.
Phil also had an intimate connection with Fraser Park since 1970 when he played junior cricket and rugby for Taita. He has been a member of the Fraser Park and latterly Hutt City Squash clubs for most of the last 40 years, serving 20 years on the Fraser Park Squash Club Committee including 15 years as President.
Phil has three children that he used to coach and support in rugby, cricket, t-ball and squash at Fraser Park, and now they grown up, he has plenty of time available to devote to the administration and promotion of FPS to help make it the success it should surely be.
I have worked at Inland Revenue for many years and specialise in issues concerning the application of tax legislation, and hold a Bachelor of Commerce, and a Diploma in Accounting.
