Near the end of the file cdi_goal are the text and data for a debugging program. Most of the strings are fairly generic and unremarkable... apart from two unusual lines which mention a programmer in some way.
The first is located at 0x2BE61:

Given that the text appears in Wimbledon Challenge unaltered, the programmer in question is either Stuart "Stuie" Pilkington or Kevin Higgins, who are listed as "Software Engineers" in the credits of both games. It's not the programmer's personal telephone number, though - the same number appears in an old Philips document advertising courses for designers and programmers for the CD-i (page 66 of this file).
