Phillip "Phil" Jevons (born 1 August 1979 in Liverpool, England) is an English football player. He is currently with Football League One side Huddersfield Town. As of 22 July 2009, he is on loan at Football League Two side Morecambe. He is notably remembered by some football fans for his 45 yard goal in extra time for Grimsby Town whilst playing against his home town club of Liverpool in the English League Cup in 2001.


Club career



Jevons is a product of the Everton F.C. Academy and became one of the stars of their youth side, scoring 55 goals in 91 youth team games and winning the FA Youth Cup in 1998. Despite his reputation for frequently scoring in the youth and reserve side, He failed to make much impact on the first team squad, however he managed to feature in several Premiership games. He became a part of the Everton youth team squad that started such professional careers as Francis Jeffers and Danny Cadamarteri. But where as Jeffers stayed on and made an impact at Goodison Park, Jevons was transfer listed and left the club at the end of the 2000-2001 season.

Grimsby Town

In July 2001, he was sold to Grimsby Town for £250,000. Grimsby were playing in the Football League First Division, and Jevons was one of the first signings of the new campaign for manager Lennie Lawrence. He became an instant hit at Blundell Park as Grimsby fired themselves to the top of the league within the first five games of the season, notably his partnership with youngster Jonathan Rowan had shown early promise. He is fondly remembered by Town fans for scoring a stunning long-range goal in extra time of a 2-1 League Cup win at Liverpool, which was the Mariners' first-ever victory at Anfield.[1] After this success the club were knocked out in the following round by Arsenal and this was to be the end of the glory for one season. Following the collapse of ITV Digital Grimsby like many other smaller clubs in England struggled financially and this lead new manager Paul Groves to the task of culling the clubs wage bill. Following the completion of several league games for Grimsby in the 2002-2003 season , Jevons was loaned out to Humberside rivals Hull City for the remainder of the season. Jevons returned to The Mariners fold midway through the 2003–04 season, as the club decided to reinstate the player after both injury and wage troubles. Despite his goals and his seemingly good partnership with Isaiah Rankin, the club suffered a second successive relegation and Jevons left the club at the end of the season after a supposed bust up with club chairman Peter Furneaux. In total Jevons scored 24 times as a Grimsby Town player.

Yeovil Town

He joined Yeovil Town on a free transfer in June 2004 and became an integral part of manager Gary Johnson's squad as Yeovil launched an assault on promotion from League Two. He became leading scorer for the club - in 2005 and was also the joint top scorer in all four divisions with 27 league goals. Ultimately at the end of the season he earned promotion to League One. Jevons had a consolidation season in 2005–06 as Yeovil adapted to League One football, at the end of the season, Gary Johnson quit as the clubs manager and this also paved the way for Phil's departure from Huish Park.

Bristol City

He joined Bristol City after a free transfer from Yeovil Town in the summer of 2006, following Gary Johnson to Ashton Gate. Once again Jevons romped his way through League One, earning goals that would see the club promoted to the Championship league. After promotion though, Jevons slipped out of contention in the squad and on 22 November 2007 he went to Huddersfield Town on a month's loan.

Huddersfield Town

He made his debut on 24 November, as a substitute in Town's 1-0 loss against Leyton Orient at the Galpharm Stadium. On 1 December he scored his first two goals in a 3-0 against his former club, Grimsby Town to send Huddersfield through to the third round of the FA Cup. His first league goal for the Terriers came against his parent club's rivals, Bristol Rovers. Then on 24 December, Jevons's loan was extended until 19 January 2008.[2] However, on 10 January Jevons was signed for £100,000, that could double to £200,000 depending on appearances and whether Town win promotion, on a deal that takes him until summer 2010.[3] On 23 March 2009, he joined League Two side Bury on a month's loan. He made his debut as a substitute the following day in the 1-1 draw against Rotherham United at the Don Valley Stadium. He stayed during their play-off campaign, but unfortunately he had his penalty saved in the second leg against Shrewsbury Town, before they lost on a penalty shoot-out.


On 22 July 2009 Jevons signed for Morecambe on a season-long loan deal, along with teammate Ian Craney. He got his first goal for the Shrimps in their 5-2 defeat by Burton Albion on 15 August 2009.
