Mo Touray Returns To Barry Town United

It’s official! Mo Touray is a Barry Town United player once again, having signed on a season long loan from Newport County.

Mo returns to Jenner Park following a successful loan spell last season, in which he scored 14 goals in all competitions and won a hat-trick of awards at the end of the campaign – Supporters’ Player of the Year, Manager’s Young Player of the Year and the ‘Champagne Moment’ for his goal at Bala Town that put us 3-2 ahead in the game to secure European qualification. In addition, he was named as the Welsh Premier League’s Young Player of the Year and included as a ‘substitute’ in the Team of the Season.

Born in Gambia, Touray has been capped at Under 19 and Under 21 level by Wales, and scored for the latter against Switzerland last October. Prior to his time at Barry, the striker also spent time on loan at Merthyr Town and on trial at Leicester City. He has made one senior appearance for Newport, coming off the bench against Carlisle United in League Two in May 2018. He spent pre-season this summer in the first team set-up at Rodney Parade, before joining National League side Torquay United on a one-month loan at the start of August.

Following the conclusion of that deal, the 20-year-old now links back up with Gavin Chesterfield’s squad, which he was a hugely popular part of last season.

Having completed the signing, Chesterfield commented:

“The opportunity to bring Mo back to the club came around quite late in the window but it was one we could not turn down. It’s no secret that Mo had a good season with us last year and that he was very well liked by all at the club. As such I’m delighted to be working with him again. My thanks to the board for their support and Mike Flynn and Newport County for their continued trust in us.”
