Charles Alexander "Charlie" King (born 15 November 1979) is a Scottish professional footballer. He is currently the assistant manager of Scottish Junior Football Association, East Region side Broughty Athletic after a career in the Scottish Football League for several clubs.

A striker, King began his career with St Johnstone in 1996. He remained at McDiarmid Park for three years, making just four league appearances.

In June 1999 he joined Livingston, after being on loan to the Almondvale club the previous season. In all, he made 59 league appearances for Livi, scoring ten goals.

After a loan period at Stirling Albion during the 2000–01 season, he joined Brechin City that spring. Before being released, he was the longest-serving player at the club. He was released on May the 6th 2012 by the Brechin City manager at the time, Jim Weir, much to the shock and disappointment of both himself and Brechin fans. He scored his last goal for the club the day before in a 4-2 defeat to Dumbarton.

He joined neighbours Forfar Athletic on a one-year deal on 6 June 2012.

King took his first step into management in May 2013, with his appointment as player-manager of Junior side Brechin Victoria.[1] He left Vics in December 2016, and was appointed as assistant to Broughty Athletic manager Keith Gibson.[2]
