Phillip Aston

We are saddened to learn of the passing of former Walsall player Phillip Aston, who has died aged 94.
Phillip, who made ten appearances for the Saddlers during the 1951/52 season, also played for Wolverhampton Wanderers, Leicester City, Luton Town, Tottenham Hotspur, Burton Albion and Gresley during an eventful career.

Phillip not only had a lengthy football career but fought for his country during World War II, played cricket for England and also worked as a coach at Measham.

The thoughts of everyone at Bescot Banter are with Phillip's family, friends, and fans during this sad time.
