- In RaWZ we trust....Amen.
King was offered a new contract from what I remember....The girlfriend/wife(I think he was married)was used by the player as the excuse to move closer to Bristol,hence Appleton’s ire when he moved to Torquay.I was told, many years ago, that King got his girlfriend pregnant. Our manager at the time was Colin Appleton, who was a bit 'old school ' in this regard and thought that this was terrible. Hence he wanted King gone...
Pity, as he was a classy full back.
