Peter King (5 July 1964 – 23 February 2012[1]) was an English footballer who played as a midfielder for Crewe Alexandra in the Football League.

Playing career[edit]

King was a youth player at Liverpool, but left Anfield when he signed for Fourth Division club Crewe Alexandra in the summer of 1983; he was actually not signed by new manager Dario Gradi, as the Alex board acted on the recommendation of Liverpool and former Alex secretary Peter Robinson.[2] He went on to make 64 appearances for the "Railwaymen" during the 1983–84 and 1984–85 campaigns, scoring five goals.[2][3] He later played non-league football for Southport in the Northern Premier League in 1985–86 and 1986–87, before joining league rivals Morecambe.[4]
