Concord Rangers have announced that Steve King has decided to leave following ten years at the club.
King has been with the club during some its finest days in recent history, including the Isthmian Premier Play-Off victory over Lowestoft Town and the run to the FA Cup first round, while he has also won three Essex Senior Cups whilst with the Beachboys.
King released the following statement via his Twitter account @Steve5King:
‘Gutted to say that my time at Concord Rangers has come to an end. I’ve decided to take a break from football for a few months due to to work commitments, renovating our house while my beautiful wife and I await the arrival in October of a little addition to our family. After coming back for a couple of weeks of pre season, it became apparent the commitment was just too much.
Sammy and Jack have been a breath of fresh air at the club and have been very supportive of my decision and I do hope to return in some capacity in the future. The last 10 years at the club have been amazing and together we’ve enjoyed so much success and will have memories that will last a lifetime.
I have to say a massive thanks to the chairman Ant who has been a great support to everyone who has been at the club over the years including myself, to the fans and committee, without who the club wouldn’t be where it is today, to Jayne and all the girls for all the effort they put into the club and to Danny who after lots of persuasion managed to get me to become part of a football family and adventure I’ve thoroughly enjoyed every step of the way!
All the best for the season and hopefully I’ll be back soon.’
