Newport County AFC are delighted to announce the double-signing of Academy stars Momodou Touray and Jay Foulston.
At half-time between County and Swindon Town it has been announced that Momodou Touray and Jay Foulston have signed professional deals with The Exiles.
Striker Momodou Touray has signed a deal until June 2019, while central-defender Jay Foulston has signed a deal until June 2020.
Touray said after signing, “I’m delighted to sign my first pro-deal with Newport County AFC. I’ve loved every minute of being at this Club so far and I’m delighted that my time here can continue. I’ve been given a great opportunity now to progress and I’m going to work hard and try to make the most of it. The aim has always been to play professional football and I’d love to be able to do that with this Club.”
While Jay Foulston said "I’m delighted to sign this pro-deal. It’s always been a dream since a young age and I’m glad that Newport County AFC have given me this opportunity. I’m looking forward to the Seasons to come and hopefully breaking into the first team.”
Manager Mike Flynn spoke to #iFollowExiles soon after the signings were confirmed, firstly speaking about Jay Foulston, he said: “It’s a fantastic opportunity for Jay to prove he can make a living out of the game. He’s someone with a great attitude and is keen to learn. If he takes on board what is being asked of him, he will have a very good career in the game.”
The Gaffer also spoke about the signing of Touray: “Momodou has excelled during his time with the U19s Wales side. It goes to shows how important the Community programme is as he was first spotted by Norman Parselle whilst he was part of the County in the Community College Programme.”
Well done, lads!
