Stanley snare defender King

11 January 2008 11:59
Accrington Stanley boss John Coleman has swooped to sign Blackburn Rovers left-back Mark King on a free transfer. The 19-year-old came through the youth academy at Ewood Park but failed to make a first-team appearance for the Premier League outfit. His progress was hampered by two serious knee injuries but he impressed Coleman during a recent training match between the two clubs. King has signed a deal with Stanley until the end of the season.
