Phoenix FC Signs FC Tampa Bay’s All-Time Leading Goal Scorer Striker Aaron King

Washington, D.C. (November 19, 2012) – USL PRO Expansion Franchise Phoenix FC signed FC Tampa Bay’s All-Time leading goal scorer Aaron King to a one year contract.  King is no stranger to being a part of an expansion franchise as he scored 21 regular season goals for FC Tampa Bay in 2010 (12 goals, 2 assists) and 2011 (9 goals, 5 assists) which ranked 3rd and 5th respectively in the league.  Phoenix FC jumped at the chance to sign King once they knew he was available to establish a veteran presence amongst the club’s strikers that includes Scottish legend Darren Mackie.  King is excited to get focus on 2013, “I am very happy to be a part of Phoenix FC and their expansion year and be a part of the Phoenix community.  I have only heard great things about the organization and city.  I had great conversations with Coach Robertson prior to signing and fully expect a competitive team that will fight for a Playoff spot in 2013.  I cannot wait to get out on the pitch and help the team anyway that I can.  Preseason cannot come quick enough!”

The 28-year old striker signs after missing the entire 2012 season due to a February Achilles injury suffered while on a European trial.  However, King has devoted hours to recover and come back even stronger ahead of Phoenix FC’s February preseason.  “I want to thank my family and fiancee for all the support they gave me during my recovery.  I also want to thank all the doctors, nurses and physical therapists who provided me with the treatment necessary to be in this position to sign and be ready well in advance of preseason,” reflected King.


King had no shortage of options during the offseason as he was able to recently train with an MLS club and several European clubs that monitored him after the 2011 season remained interested to bring him in on trial.  However, he elected to sign with Phoenix FC and focus on achieving another productive goal scoring season.   Phoenix FC fans can take a look at King's FC Tampa Bay highlights and expect similar production in 2013.
