Ben Foster signs new Wrexham contract

Ben Foster has signed a new contract with Wrexham.

After sealing their return to the English Football League in April, all eyes are on their every move as they prepare for League Two.

One of the main talking points is whether goalkeeper Foster will remain at the club after coming out of retirement midway through the 22/23 campaign.



Now, it has been confirmed that he is staying as Wrexham took to Twitter to announce the news.

Their statement read: "Wrexham AFC are delighted to announce goalkeeper Ben Foster has signed a new one-year contract with the Football Club, committing to continue playing until the end of the 2023/24 season.

"Foster came out of retirement to rejoin the Red Dragons following injury to Rob Lainton at the end of last season.

And the veteran former England international keeper has now signed a new contract, extending his playing career for a further campaign."


Fans were quick to react to the tweet.


Another tweeted: “Ooooh woahhh, SUPER BEN FOSTER IN GOALLLLL.”

A third fan added: “I've been waiting for this for months!! I can breath again! What a signing that will be!”


Someone else wrote: “He’s stayinggg!”

Whilst a fifth commented: “Unreal. Hope Foster has another top season.”

Speaking about his decision to continue at the club, Foster said: “At the end of last season it was obvious that I enjoyed being at the Club, I loved being part of the team and everything that Wrexham stands for.


“The fans took to me so warmly, Phil Parkinson is brilliant, Steve Parkin is top class, I love Aidan Davison to bits, and the Co-Chairmen are out of this world.”

He added: “I’d decided before the end of last season I wanted to do it, because it feels like home. I’ve never joined a football club and felt at ease so quickly.”
