“It’s nice to encourage the young players” says King after draw with Gloucester City

Dan King says he is relishing his role within the Slimbridge squad, from on the pitch to helping the young players coming through the ranks at Thornhill Park.

King spoke to Severn Sport after a man of the match performance against Gloucester City in a pre-season friendly on Saturday afternoon.

The former Gloucester City and Shortwood United man scored a rocket of an equaliser in an impressive performance for the Southern League side, another eye-catching one since moving to a ‘number 10’ role for the Swans.

King also spoke to us about how coming through the youth set up at City has helped him be able to lend advice and guidance to the U18s players coming through the ranks at Slimbridge.
