Phil Kite (born 26 October 1962 in Bristol, England) is a former football goalkeeper and goalkeeping coach, who is now the club physio for Bristol Rovers. He also has a son, Alex Kite, who also plays for Bristol Rovers.

Playing career

He joined Bristol Rovers as an apprentice goalkeeper in 1979, and signed his first professional contract on his 18th birthday in October 1980. After making 96 league appearances for Rovers, he moved on to Southampton. He went on to make league appearances for thirteen different clubs, but missed a large amount of playing time through injury, and only a two-year spell at Gillingham saw him play regularly as an established first-choice keeper. In 1996, he left Bristol City to re-join his first club, Bristol Rovers, as physio, goalkeeping coach and backup goalkeeper.

Physio career

He began studying towards his physiotherapy qualification in 1991 and completed his studies in 1995. Since re-joining Bristol Rovers he has retired from playing, and relinquished his coaching duties to Steve Book. He now works exclusively as a physio and is in the process of gaining the necessary qualifications to become a chartered physiotherapist.
