  • Player profile

    Leicester-born, King went down the City history books thanks to a spell of 18 seasons with the club as Fosse as City from 1906 after spending his early career with Aylestone Swifts, St Andrews and Leicester Imperial.

    During that time he amassed over 350 appearances for the club during World War I and in the Football League. He also played in seven different positions and chipped in with 50 goals along the way.

    He was known for being a half-back but also played, and excelled, at centre-forward and helped out in other positions when called upon, making him a reliable member of City's squad for a long time.

    King only retired as a player when he was about to turn 40 and turned his hand to coaching instead, as well as continuing in his role as a county cricketer for Leicestershire, who he had kept wicket for since the end of the war.
