King netted four goals for Lewes in the FA Women’s Championship in 18 appearances. The player has been a reliable figure in matches against clubs in and around Lewes in the league table. All four of King’s league goals came against sides in the lower reaches of the FA Women’s Championship.
The early days of King’s career saw the player spend time with both Liverpool and Everton. She has also enjoyed spells in Switzerland with FC Basel and in Germany with FF UPS Jena prior to her move to Lewes in February 2019.
The player leaves The Dripping Pan with the best wishes of everyone at the club.
