Tom King - Goalkeeper

D.O.B. - 16/12/1980 Stroud, Glos

Debut : Dorchester Town (A) - 29/01/2000

Last Game : Rothwell Town (A) - 06/05/2000

When your Grandfather, Father, Uncle and brother are all goalkeepers, it is perhaps inevitable that you will follow in their footsteps.

That was the case for Tom King, who made his debut for City at Dorchester Town as a 19 year old in January 2000.

At the time of his debut he was still playing for Shortwood United in in his first week at the Tigers played four games.

Tom's grandfather Harold played for the Tigers in the 1950s. Next came father Mervyn, who played for Shortwood, and uncle Mark was reserve to David Moss when Forest Green reached the 1982 FA Vase final.

King originally signed as cover for the suspended Ryan Gannaway but following the news that Gannaway had quit the club he was thrust into first team action permanently. His lack of experience didn't help as the Tigers were relegated and King left Meadow Park in the summer.

Tom went on to play for Swindon Supermarine and Cirencester Town among others and was in goal for Supermarine the day that City confirmed their promotion back to the Southern League Premier division.
