Opinion: Trailblazer Ebony Salmon set for Huge Future

Copyright: Bradley Collyer

At just 19-years old, scoring goals to keep your team’s survival hopes alive is something Ebony Salmon is used to.

After pestering the Spurs backline earlier this season, she popped up with a 92nd minute equaliser to earn Bristol City’s first point of the campaign. Salmon is best known for influential performances like this one.

Despite not being given a chance during her time at Manchester United, she has established herself as one of England’s top prospects. Her hard work only means she will continue to rise into the spotlight.

Salmon’s story is one that is truly special in football. The teen has become a star in her team after being looked past in her earlier years. However, she has used this as fuel to better herself and become a force to be reckoned with in Bristol’s attack.

The young Lioness’ finishing and control on the ball makes her a nightmare to deal with. Adding her blistering pace both on and off the ball makes it peculiar to see why she was never given a chance at Man United.

What Salmon has done in a short career thus far has been hugely impressive and I would be surprised if she doesn’t move onto a bigger club at the end of the 2020/21 season. She certainly has the skillset and the drive to achieve huge things in the near future.
