16. David Longe-King
DATE OF BIRTH
The former Newport County defender joined us on a two-year deal during the summer.
The Mariners have fought off strong competition from a number of clubs for the signature of the 26-year-old who became Paul Hurst's fifth new recruit of the close season.
Longe-King enjoyed a period at Biggleswade Town during the 18/19 season, making 45 appearances in all competitions, scoring one goal, and helping the club achieve 14 clean sheets.
Following an England C call-up whilst in the third step of football against Estonia in June 2019, David joined Albans City, where he was an ever-present making 40 appearances in all competitions, scoring one goal, and contributing to 10 clean sheets in the National League South.
The 6'3 center-back then made the move to Newport County AFC, where he made a total of 12 appearances, making his full debut in professional football in the 3rd Round of the Emirates FA Cup in a penalty defeat against Brighton & Hove Albion.
