Club career[edit]

King started his journey in Lincoln City's U9's team. He went up through the ranks for ten years. He also played for East Coast Juniors as a young kid once scored 50 goals from midfield in one season.

King signed his first professional contract on 19 April 2008. Later that day, he made his first start for Lincoln and scored against Brentford in the 39th minute of the game. Lincoln later went on to win this match 3–1.

He joined Boston United on loan on 8 January 2009 till mid-March. He joined Accrington prior to the 2009–10 season. Gary enjoyed his first goal for Accrington against the team from where he was born, Grimsby Town.

On 7 June 2010 he signed for Hinckley United.[2]

On 12 November 2010 he signed non-contract terms with Louth Town,[3] marking his debut for the club by scoring a last minute winner in the 2–1 victory at Appleby Frodingham in the Northern Counties East League Division One clash on 13 November 2010.[4] After two further appearances for the club, one in the league one in the cup, he moved on, joining Stamford at the beginning of December 2010.[5] However, with inclement weather preventing any competitive football for the club, a seven-day notice for King's services was put in by Harrogate Town shortly before Christmas[6] and he duly linked up with the Football Conference North club.[7]

King was released from Harrogate Town on 13 May 2011 after his contract was not renewed for the new season.[8]

In July 2011 it was announced that he had rejoined Stamford.[9] He returned to Stamford in January 2012[10] On 18 February 2012, he agreed to join Corby Town on a dual-registration deal with Grantham Town.[11]

In August 2013 he joined Brigg Town[16] but swiftly departed to join Grantham Town, making a goalscoring debut in the club's opening day 2-1 defeat at Ashton United on 17 August 2013.[17][18] On 9 December 2013, he moved on to join Coalville Town[19][20] However, his spell with the club was short and he returned to Grantham Town in January 2014.[21] In April 2014 he was on his travels again, joining Deeping Rangers[22] for whom he would score twice for in their 4-5 defeat to Huntingdon Town in the United Counties League Cup Final on 5 May 2014.[23] He agreed to join Holbeach United ahead on the 2014-15 season[24] and, after completing a whole season with the club, agreed new terms for the 2015-16 season.[25] In December 2015 he moved on to join Lincoln United.[26] In January 2017 he joined Stamford.[27]
