LOAN: Forward heads out on short-term spell

Toure joins Aldershot

21 October 2021

Carlisle United can confirm that forward Gime Toure has joined National League side Aldershot Town on a one-month loan deal.

Toure, 27, teamed up with the Blues in the summer of 2020 on an initial one-year deal, and had a club option triggered at the end of last season to take that into a second term.

He has scored four goals in 43 appearances for the club so far.

Caretaker manager Gav Skelton said: “This will be good for Gime because, like any player, he’s desperate to play.

“He’s been frustrated that he hasn’t been getting the game time he wants with us, and this provides an opportunity for him to get himself back out there.

“It’s one of those moves that benefits all parties, and hopefully he’ll go there, settle quickly and really start to push on again.”

Touré, a strong and mobile attacker, began his career back in his home country of France where an eye-catching 2013/14 season for ES Viry-Chatillon earned him a trial with West Brom.

He also played for La Roche, Brest B and Fontenay LCVF in Championnat National 2, Group D in his native country.

The lively front-man returned to England in 2017 when he spent pre-season with Wrexham before going on to win a deal at eventual Conference champions Macclesfield Town.

He was with AFC Fylde for the first half of the 2018/19 season before ending the campaign at Sutton, playing 41 games and hitting the net seven times.

The 2019/20 season saw him enjoy a hugely successful stay with Hartlepool, where he scored 13 goals in just 39 appearances.
