XLP vs David Phillips friendly match
Our team took on the rising football stars at XLP in our first ever match. This friendly was a warm-up game for an even bigger event coming soon – be sure to follow us on social media to keep updated!
A few words from match organiser Ashley Elsey (Transport Operations Manager).
“After about 30 minutes of playing, it became apparent that XLP players were (slightly) fitter than us here at David Phillips so we decided to mix the team up with half XLP players and half David Phillips players which evened up the game nicely! Overall, the evening was a massive success in terms of breaking the ice between us and XLP. We are eager to meet again in the tournament we have planned for later on in the year!”

Tree planting at Cambridge City Football Club
Charlie Whinney (Chief Financial Officer) and Thaisa Cowin (Account Manager) worked with Cambridge City FC to plant 400 trees following our priorities to offset our emissions and be carbon neutral. We’re passionate about sustainability and hope the planting of these trees will benefit the local community and engage people to get involved in helping the planet.
“The donation from David Phillips was greatly appreciated and allowed us to complete the landscaping for the stadium build. The community planting day we hosted brought together lots of people from the village.” – Alice Dewey, General Manager of Cambridge City FC.
