Gladiators see the return of King

Craig King was a surprise inclusion in the Gladiators squad at Ossett United last weekend just three weeks after leaving the Proctor Cars Stadium for Frickley Athletic.

King came off the bench to play the second half in the 2-1 win at Ingfield and he is delighted to be back.

“I went there and it’s not for me, I think I can still play and contribute at NPL Premier Division level” said King who contacted Gladiators boss Paul Phillips asking if he could return.

“Matlock’s a great club, I know the club and how well it’s run , I want to play for Matlock, work hard and hopefully be part of a successful season for the club. When I was injured I was treated very well by the club and for me coming back’s a no brainer.”
