The premier League club finished 8th last term amassing only two-two points in twenty-two games losing ten matches.

Lapses in the previous campaign were blamed on kamikaze defending. Aware of the ever increasing demand to solidify the defense, Rhyls Rhyl FC considered to offer Touray, a former Everton reserves player, chance in the team.

Fielding as left-back the 20-year-old is meeting growing expectations at least if his recent games are any to go by.

Against Bangor City, one of Wales experienced teams, Ibou put on a massive show helping tighten a once vulnerable backline in a game that ended one-all. That was followed up with another 90-minute display against Aberystwyth Town away.

The left-back whose play is likened to Real Madrid’s Marcelo by pundits, picked up his first yellow card of the season but starred till end of the match as his Rhyl of a side were subjected to their first defeat of the season on a 3-1 score.

Touray and Rhyl put the lost behind them to force a goalless draw against The New Saints in game three.

The 20-year-old wasn’t invited in the game versus Cameroon played yesterday despite getting called up for the South Africa tie in Durban and playing in Gambia’s friendly against Uganda.
