Forbes Ernest Phillipson-Masters (born 14 November 1955) is an English former footballer who played in the Football League as a central defender for Southampton, Exeter City, Bournemouth, Luton Town, Plymouth Argyle and Bristol City.

Phillipson-Masters was born in Bournemouth. He originally signed with Southampton as an apprentice goalkeeper in August 1972, but was given a free transfer two years later by Lawrie McMenemy. John McGrath, then Saints' youth team coach, persuaded the player to try his luck in the centre-half position. The conversion was successful, and, after playing nine times for the Saints first team, and spending spells on loan to Exeter City, A.F.C. Bournemouth and Luton Town, Phillipson-Masters was sold to Plymouth Argyle for £50,000 in 1979, where he was to make over a hundred league appearances. He went on to Bristol City, where he made nearly another hundred. After a season with Yeovil Town, he then moved into non-League football management in the Dorset area, combined with working as a painter and decorator.

Ollie Phillipson-Masters, son of Forbes, has played for Bournemouth "Poppies" F.C. of the Wessex League since August 2009.
