Terry Phelan

Date of birth16 March 1967
Place of birthManchester
NationalityIrish
Weight66 kg
Height1.73 m
PositionDefender/Left back

Over 40 caps for the Republic of Ireland in a long and sparkling career. Approaching 500 appearances at club level. Terry had a season he will want to forget at Fulham in 2000-01. An injury during the pre-season meant that Rufus Brevett was able to reclaim the left back berth in the defence and he subsequently played so well that he couldn't be left out. Apart from an outing in the Worthington Cup against Northampton, Terry had to wait until January for his first appearance from the subs' bench and despite several fine performances in the reserves his only other first-team action came when he replaced the suspended Brevett for the final game at Grimsby.
