Phil Bolland (born 26 August 1976 in Liverpool) is an English professional footballer, currently playing for Barrow AFC in the Conference National.

Bolland has enjoyed two spells at Chester City, having signed from Peterborough United in the summer of 2006 - just a few months after he'd moved in the opposite direction. Mark Wright has managed him at the four clubs he has been in charge of, namely Southport, Oxford, Chester and Peterborough. Bolland had earlier played in non-league football for clubs including Altrincham, Salford City, Trafford and Knowsley United.

Bolland struggled to stake a place in the first-team side at Chester under new manager Bobby Williamson in 2007 08, making just three appearances. He spent time on trial with Wrexham and it was announced in December 2007 he was no longer part of Chester's plans.

On 8 January 2008 it was announced Bolland had been released by Chester and he quickly agreed terms with Wrexham. He was released by Wrexham in May 2008 following the club's relegation to the Football Conference and signed for Cambridge United on 31 July 2008 where he would be reunited with former teammates Gary Brabin and Paul Carden, manager and assistant manager of the Conference side. He spent one season at Cambridge, before signing for Barrow AFC, also of the Conference National.

In May 2011 he was offered a new contract by Barrow.
