Steven John "Steve" Phillips (born 6 May 1978 in Bath, Somerset) is an English football goalkeeper who currently plays for Bristol Rovers.

The Westcountry goalkeeper began his career in Non-League with Paulton Rovers and then earned a big move to Bristol City where he went on to play 250 league appearances for the Ashton Gate outfit.

However, after an alleged falling out with City boss Gary Johnson he was replaced from the first team by Adriano Basso early into the 2005/06 season. Despite being in his testimonial season Phillips never figured regularly again for City.

In the summer of 2006 Phillips moved across the city to bitter rivals Bristol Rovers F.C.. This was after Phillips made a "come and get me" plea to Swindon Town manager Dennis Wise through ex-City team mate Lee Peacock. Wise chose to pursue Petr Brezovan instead.

Phillips took over the number one jersey at Bristol Rovers, taking over from Scott Shearer and very much helped Rovers secure a play-off spot in the 2006/07 season with Phillips earning much praise, and winning Player of the Year. Phillips won League Two's player of the month for November after not conceding any league goals during that month. He also won The Football Leagues Golden Glove competition after keeping the most clean sheets in the football league for the 2006/07 season. He was also awarded the Bristol Rovers Player 2006/07 Player of the Year.
