Liam King adamant North Ferriby can reign over rivals
NORTH Ferriby midfielder Liam King believes his side are capable of not just winning promotion to Conference North, but staying there as well.
King joined the Villagers after four years at Matlock and is making a big impact in the heart of Ferriby's midfield.
The former Rotherham and Altrincham player is impressed with the squad Billy Heath has assembled and predicts a successful time to come.
"We can win this league if we carry on doing what we are good at," King told the Mail.

"Not only that but I feel this squad is good enough to hold our own in the Conference North too because a lot of the players have played at a much higher level.
"We didn't do so well in the cups, but the league is our priority.
"Promotion is our goal if we stick to what we're doing.
"Billy has assembled a very good squad who all want to play for each other.
"We have strength in all areas and if we pick up injuries, we have good players to come into the side.
"If we don't play well as a team, then we are more than capable of grinding out a result."
Ferriby may have to grind out a result tomorrow against Rushall Olympic, the side they beat 4-1 to win last season's Doodson Cup.
After losing 3-2 to Hednesford at the Rapid Solicitors Stadium last Saturday, King wants the Villagers to start another winning run and admits they are still smarting from that defeat.
"We are still frustrated with the way we lost," King said. "But nothing will change the way we prepare for the game.
"We will try and do the right things. We want to win every game and get as many points as we can.
"Rushall is another big game, as they all are when you are top of the table.
"We are the ones other teams are chasing and we want to open a gap on them. On our day we are as good as anyone in this league.
"Against Hednesford we did okay but there is more to come from us."
King is enjoying his time at Ferriby but admits leavingMatlock was not easy.
"It was a hard decision," he said. "I had some good years there and made a lot of good friends.
"But we are doing great and we are top of the table and I have no regrets about coming here."
PAUL Foot should remain in the squad following his return to the bench against Hednesford and Steve Ridley is back from a one-match ban.
