31/12/22: AFC Rushden & Diamonds are delighted to welcome Gambian U20 International striker Momodou Talibeh Jallow to the Club.

19-year-old ‘Tali’ arrives from Southern League Division One Central side Kempston Rovers, whom he recently joined following his release from MK Dons. Last season, Tali spent time on loan with Redditch United having previously been associated with Boreham Wood.

In 2021, the 6’ 1” striker was part of the Gambia U20 squad that reached the semi-finals of the African Cup of Nations in Mauritania.

Manager Chris Nunn commented on his new striker: “Tali was one of my last signings at Kempston so I’m pleased to be able to sign him again so quickly and thank Kempston for their help with this. He’s a really good, honest lad that will get better and better the more minutes he gets. He gives us something different and in return, we’re giving him a platform to show what he can do at Step 3. He’s had some great experience in football already for someone so young and I’m pleased to get him on board.”

Subject to league approval, Tali will be in the squad for Monday’s game against St. Ives Town.

21/01/23: Following one promising appearance at Ilkeston Town, Momodou ‘Tali’ Jallow has left the Club having been offered a professional contract by a club in Sweden. Tali leaves us with our very best wishes and first team manager, Chris Nunn, had this to say: “It goes without saying that we wish Tali well; it’s a fantastic opportunity for him to resume playing football in a professional environment. We were never going to stand in his way, and it just shows that there is a route back to the professional game at this Club. It’s also great that we’re identifying players capable of making that step up. We’ll keep in touch with him, and we wish him all the best.”
