Playing career

Salmon is a product of the Wolverhampton Wanderers academy, but after signing his first professional contract in February 2007, failed to make a first team appearance for the club. He joined League One Port Vale on loan in November 2007, and made his debut on 24 November as a substitute, replacing Marc Laird 87 minutes into a 3–1 defeat by Doncaster Rovers at Vale Park. His first senior start came ten days later at Elland Road, as Leeds United played out a comfortable 3–0 win. He played in Vale's infamous 1–0 defeat FA Cup to Chasetown, though remained in the first eleven until returning to Molineux in January.

He was released by Wolves in early 2009 and soon returned to his native Ireland to join League of Ireland side, Drogheda United. In the summer of 2009, he switched to Athlone Town of the First Division. He joined Longford Town in February 2010, and scored two goals in 32 league games in 2010. He scored eight goals in 28 appearances for the club in 2011. He scored three goals in 38 appearances in 2012, as Tony Cousins's Longford reached the play-off semi-finals following a third-place finish in the league. He scored two goals in 14 appearances in 2013, as Longford finished second and reached the play-off finals, where they were beaten by Bray Wanderers.

In his fifth year at the club, he finally got to enjoy success with "De Town" at the end of the 2014 season as the club won promotion as champions of the First Division. Salmon lifted the cup as club captain following the title being secured. Longford also reached the final of the Leinster Senior Cup, losing 2–1 to St Patrick's Athletic at Strokestown Road.

Salmon signed for Bray Wanderers on a two-year contract in November 2015 after being released by Longford. Harry Kenny's "Seagulls" finished sixth in 2016, with Salmon making 26 league appearances.
