Touray nets first Salford goal

Scorpions defender Ibou Touray has scored his first goal for Salford City in their 3-2 defeat at Barrow at the weekend.

The 24-year-old, currently attracting interest from English League One club Shrewsbury Town, netted in what appeared to be a consolation for Salford, who lie second on the fifth-tier English league table with 55 points.

The goal was The Gambia international left-back’s first for the club after 68 league matches.

He joined ambitious Salford on a free transfer from Nantwich Town in 2017.

Liverpool-born Touray, who is a former Everton player, established himself as a key player in the Salford side since joining in the summer of 2017 and his performances have alerted clubs higher up the football pyramid.

Salford are meanwhile keen on keeping hold of their star left-back as they look to maintain their push for promotion to the fourth-tier of English league football.
