Golden boy King reaches century

Golden boy King reaches century

Watford hitman Marlon King notched up the 100th league goal of his career with a spectacular (albeit deflected) free kick in New Year`s Day massacre of Southampton at St Marys.

The Hornets striker hit the important golden milestone after just 238 league starts for Barnet, Gillingham, Nottingham Forest, Leeds and Aidy Boothroyd`s Glory Hornet boys - giving him an impressive ratio of just under a goal every 2 games.

That puts him on bang on par with goal machine legends such as Teddy Sheringham, Les Ferdinand and Liverpool`s finest, Ian Rush.

Golden Boy King, who netted his first ever league goal for Barnet in a 3-2 win over Southend at Roots Hall in December 1998, has now netted 36 times in his short Hornets career and is fast approaching the 40 strikes that turned him into a legend at Gillingham`s Priestfield.

King, who also netted a hat trick on his International debut for Jamaica, has been subject to transfer talk in the past few weeks with Middlesborough, Fulham, Wigan and Derby all apparently sniffing around the former Millwall trainee.

Well, with a strike rate like his, why wouldn`t you.
