Jack King was added to the Stevenage squad at the end of August 2016, brought in on loan from Scunthorpe United. A versatile player who could take up position in defence or midfield, King arrived on a five-month deal and was able to cover a shortfall in players faced by manager Darren Sarll at the time.

After starting his senior career at Swansea City in 2003, the Oxford-born player was on the move closer to home a year later after he was snapped up by Didcot Town. Brackley Town were next to secure his services in 2005, but he was back at Didcot before the year was out and would be there until 2009.

Farnborough (2009) and Woking (2011) were the next ports of call before the big leap into the Football League beckoned. In a twist of fate perhaps, the man who took him from the Cards and into the League was a certain Graham Westley - albeit with Preston North End.

King remained at Deepdale for around three years, featuring a number of times and chipping in with the odd goal too. He was part of the squad that won promotion to the Championship in 2015. At the end of that campaign, however, he left the North West on a free transfer and joined Scunthorpe United.

He appeared fairly regularly for the Iron during the 2015-6 campaign. With his experience at League One level, it was clear that King had a role to play at the Lamex during his time in Hertfordshire. And such was his impact that Boro' swooped to sign the midfielder on a permanent basis at the end of January 2017 shortly after his loan spell had expired.
