King of the High Road


Streatham are delighted to announce the signing of quadruple winning goalie Euan King from Chelmsford Chieftains.

The 27 year old is our first new face of the 2016/17 season and brings with him a wealth of experience and success.

The last three seasons he has played a big part in Chelmsford’s success and we are hoping he can bring some of that sparkle to South London.

‘Euan has had a lot of success in recent seasons and was a big obstacle to us last year in the games we played against Chelmsford’ said Head Coach Nicky Chinn.

‘He has a winning mentality and he will form a strong partnership with Will Sanderson between the pipes.’

King comes from a hockey family with father Kevin a long time player with Peterborough and Bracknell amongst other clubs, and brother Damien the goalie for Invicta Dynamos.

Euan learnt his trade at Bretton Road in Peterborough and represented GB at u18 & 20 level. He played in the English Premier League with both Peterborough Phantoms and Romford Raiders before moving down to the National league.

In his time at this level he has been voted on to the Pro Hockey News All-Star team twice. Euan has already painted a surprise Streatham related image on his helmet that should give fans a lot of pleasure.

‘I'm very excited to be joining Streatham for the upcoming season. I was looking for a new challenge this year and after speaking with Chinny I think Streatham is the perfect place for me.’

‘I have always been very intrigued by Streatham as a club. They are definitely a club on the up with a fantastic facility and a great fan base. The atmosphere in the cup final last season was unreal, coming out of our dressing room and hearing the noise gave me goosebumps. I am looking forward to playing in front of that every week.’

‘I have come here to continue winning trophies and I believe with the team that is being put together, we will have a great chance of ending the trophy drought’

Euan will wear the number 92 jersey and you can sponsor his home or away jersey for only £100.

You get to keep it at the end of the season, however as they are so popular we are going to put all interested names into a hat and draw out the winner over the next 48 hours.
