Argyle Set To Sign King

Plymouth Argyle are set to sign Gillingham defender Simon King on-loan for a month.

The 28-year old can play at left-back or centre-back and will bring some much-needed experience to Peter Reid's young team.

King, who has been capped at international level for the England C team, started his career with his home-town club Oxford United before moving to Barnet and was voted Player of the Year for the 2006-2007 season.
The 6-foot tall defender signed for Gillingham in the summer of 2007 for 200,000 and won the players' Player of the Year accolade at the end of his first season.

The 2008-2009 season was even better for King who scooped most of the end of season awards at Priestfield.
However, King missed the entire 2008-2009 season after damaging his ankle in a pre-season friendly.

King returned to action at the end of last season and made four first-team appearances for Gillingham.
With a full pre-season training regime now under his belt King should be an asset to Reid's team.

Welcome aboard the good ship Mayflower!
