Ben Foster and three Wrexham teammates "breached" club rules before Man United win

Ben Foster and three Wrexham teammates "breached" club rules before Man United win

They allegedly breached club rules.

Ben Foster and three of his Wrexham teammates “breached” club rules before the League Two side’s 3-1 victory over Manchester United, it has been claimed.

Wrexham beat a 10-man United side mostly comprised of Under-21 players, but the victory was overshadowed by an injury to talisman Paul Mullin, who scored some 46 goals in all competitions last term as the Welsh outfit ended a 15-year absence from the Football League.

Goals from Elliot Lee, Aaron Hayden and Sam Dalby helped Wrexham to victory. Meanwhile, 19-year-old Marc Jurado scored in first-half injury time for United, who had Dan Gore, 18, dismissed shortly after the restart.

Ryan Reynolds was unable to attend but Wrexham co-owner Rob McElhenney was present to see his side claim a memorable victory at a sold-out 34,248 crowd at Snapdragon Stadium, California.

Meanwhile, United boss Erik ten Hag watched his youthful side from the bench, despite his senior players travelling to Texas to take on Real Madrid.

Wrexham's 'rule breach'

According to the Daily Mirror via, less than 24 hours before Wrexham’s match against United, veteran goalkeeper Foster and three of his teammates were turned away from a San Diego Bar.

The publication claimed the four players attempted to get into the Barley Mash but were refused entry by a doorman due to their “attitude” upon being asked to provide ID.

The alleged incident came hours after manager Phil Parkinson said that his side were not allowed to sample the nightlife during their US tour.

“We've tried to give the lads an experience everywhere we’ve been,” Parkinson said.

“They had a coach trip around Hollywood and Beverly Hills. We don’t want the lads to come on this trip, be in the hotel and say ‘Lads, you’ve just got to sleep’. We’ve tried to let them go out into the local area - not the bars, I hasten to add - but the local areas, to get a feel for everything.”

Foster played the opening 45 minutes against United but was replaced at half-time by Mark Howard as Parkinson made a spate of substitutions.

SPORTbible has contacted Wrexham for comment.

The 40-year-old, who came out of retirement to help Wrexham achieve promotion to the Football League last season, had recently been praised by Parkinson for his professionalism as a role model.

Parkinson said, via “Ben's obviously a player who played for his country. He's top-class, but more importantly, he epitomises what we want. He's got off-the-pitch things going on with his podcast, but when he trains, he's incredible.

“His professionalism, day-to-day, is incredible. We wouldn't have brought Ben in if he thought it was just going to enhance his media career. He adds to the group, in the way he conducts himself as a professional, so that's very important for us.

“We've got a lot of younger players in the building and so anyone of that ilk who comes in has got to set the right example and be a good role model, and Ben's definitely that.”
