Forward Gime Toure has joined Yeovil Town to provide an attacking boost ahead of tomorrow’s visit by big-spending Wrexham.
The 28-year-old was released by League Two side Carlisle United at the end of last season and has been at Huish Park this week and goes straight in to Chris Hargreaves’ squad.
He has previously featured as a winger for former clubs including Hartlepool United where he had a prolific season in the 2019/20 season, scoring 13 times, earning him a move to Carlisle.
The manager said: “Gime has been training with us all week and has already shown why he can be such a threat at this level.
“He possesses both technical ability and natural athleticism which make him an extremely exciting attacking player.
“He is another strong addition to our squad and will be amongst the group for tomorrow’s match against Wrexham.”
Following the departure on star forward Tom Knowles a week ago, Hargreaves will be hoping Toure can provide further attacking threats alongside the likes of strikers Malachi Linton and Alex Fisher and forward Charlie Wakefield.
Although linked with a move to a number of other clubs in the Football League and National League, it does not appear that Toure has had any kind of a pre-season campaign, so his role in the game against Wrexham remains to be seen.
The Frenchman had a three-game loan spell at Aldershot Town in the National League last October and made seven appearances for Carlisle.
In the 2020/21 campaign, he made nearly 40 appearances scoring, four times.
He will be a familiar name to Glovers’ fans having scored against us in a 2-1 defeat at Hartlepool in October 2019 and then getting a late penalty for Pools in a 4-1 defeat in the FA Cup the following month.
