"In March 2013 Phil hosted the 106th Varsity Boxing Championship between Cambridge and Oxford Universities for us. Being an amateur promoter myself, it was a great help having Phil as our MC as he offered advice, drawing from his extensive experience, which had a positive impact on the quality of show we were able to put on. This, coupled with his completely professional conduct and great stage presence, I'd highly recommend Phil for any sporting event."
Christopher Kelly - Cambridge University Boxing
"Phil hosted the Heart to Heart Valentine Charity Ball at the Royal York Hotel on 10th February 2012, in aid of the Children's Heart Surgery Fund. He contributed in making the event a great success by his professionalism, sense of humour and generosity. Phil conducted a heads & tails game and the auction during the course of the evening and raised a considerable amount of money for the charity. I could not thank Phil enough for agreeing to be our MC for the Ball and I would definitely recommend him to guarantee the smooth running of any event."
Myriam Barker - Organiser of the Heart to Heart Valentine Charity Ball
"Having recently booked Phil to MC an evening of professional boxing in Leeds I will now use him for all of my shows. I found him to be totally professional both before and during the show, and he made sure the evening went totally smoothly and with a fantastic atmosphere. Phil conducted a charity auction for us before the boxing started, and raised far more money than we thought possible. I can't recommend Phil highly enough, and I look forward to working with him again soon."
Derek Roche - Boxing Promoter and former British Welterweight Champion.
"I recently booked Phil as the announcer at Cage Confrontation 2 in York, and he helped bring the show to a whole new level of professionalism. He kept the crowd excited throughout with his enthusaistic announcements and ring introductions, and also helped raise a great total for charity in our auction. We have already re-booked him for a number of shows and would highly recommend him to anyone putting on a fight show, whether it be boxing, mma or any other sport."
Gary Watkinson - United Masters Promotions
"Phil has been an outstanding member of the Sports Channel event team, his attention to detail ensures that the very best service is being given to fans attending our events. Quite often the tournaments run by the Sports Channel run all day long, in all weathers, and Phil will always provide a professional service whatever the conditions without complaint. I look forward to working with Phil again soon."
Neal Coupland - Managing Director - The Sports Channel
"Phil is exuberant, focussed and always well prepared, whether it be a corporate dinner or announcing the match day in front of 9000 supporters. His intonation makes his announcements clear and interesting. Phil is comfortable interviewing anyone we throw at him be it a sporting legend or a 5 year old mascot."
James Elston - Chief Executive - Wakefield Trinity Wildcats
"Phil has helped us in the past as a rugby league match day summariser. He was knowledgeable and concise and clear. His personality also shone through in his work with us, and he was able to pitch the tone of his comments to suit the occasion, whether that be fun or serious. And even with the fun part, he was always professional."
