Pa Dembo Touray, pronounced "Touré", (born March 31, 1980[2] in Banjul) is a retired Gambian football (goalkeeper) and national team player for Gambia. He is currently the goalkeeper coach of Prespa Birlik.

Club career[edit]

Touray began his footballing career with Real de Banjul F.C. in Gambia. In 2000, he moved to Stockholm in Sweden to play for Djurgårdens IF in the highest domestic league, Allsvenskan. Touray spent two respective loan spells with Assyriska FF[2] and Vålerenga IF[3] before returning to Djurgårdens IF following the sale of Swedish international goalkeeper Andreas Isaksson.

After Isaksson's departure, Touray was handed an extended run in the team, and since maintained his position as first-choice goalkeeper at the club. He was also rewarded with the club captaincy after several seasons of consistency and following the 2011 season was selected as the top goalkeeper in the Allsvenskan.[4] At the conclusion of the 2011 season, after a decade at Djurgårdens IF Touray left the club having appeared in 195 league matches.

Touray is one of the most celebrated fan-favorites of Djurgårdens IF, having stayed at the club for more than a decade & during one of the club's most successful spells in history. Touray is also well known for singing the West African song "Kamala, Kamala Vesta" as a victory chant, sung by Touray & repeated by the singing stand, which has become a tradition for the club ever since.

International career[edit]

Touray has been capped 25 times for Gambia.[5]
