    We need more players like Ben in the footballing industry. Players who don't care about multi million pound paychecks..... he could of very easily gone to Newcastle and earned a tonne of money but he chose his next team with his heart. Absolute legend 💪🙏

      Don't play innocent. There's something in it for him, even if it's not money. Brand exposure and networking

      @ZombieVikingGaming If anything, he will get the praise for getting Wrexham back in the EFL.

      @ZombieVikingGaming the world is not Black and White man, dont believe every single person on this planet has an agenda. If thats how you feel it is i think you need to meet more people mate. When that is said there is No such thing as a selfless deed, but you can ignore glory and accept this world is for 8 billion other people aswell, then fight to make those around you gain some glory. Fight every day to do the right thing and be good, never let your focus perish. Its not enough to say once you are going to be good and then think now you just have to ignore bad choises and you will be, No, every single Day when you wake up you have to think about your faults and how you can do good, never let your brain take shortcuts. Ben is happy now, he feel he is doing good, and you can really sense it on how he speaks and how hyped he is. Love it

      @ZombieVikingGaming mate if you do everything in life for other people you’ll always suffer, if both parties win , don’t mean there’s a selfish motive , grow up

      Fits perfectly. As he said about Newcastle he could do the training needed for premier league. This is awesome for him, training 1-2 times a week and only committed to eight games with exposure for his X-vid channel

    You can get all the media training in the world but you can’t teach what Ben has. Absolute legend. Up the cycling Gk, up the fozcast and good luck to Wrexham for the season.

      So nice to listen to an articulate, down to earth, “human” footballer not sprouting all the hyperbole from the “footballers media handbook”. I don’t think I heard him say “absolutely”, “hundred percent”, “one game at a time” or “obviously” once.

      @Steve Saunders I get what you mean but this isn’t a post match interview it’s a general one so they’re more casual, post match interviews they ask questions that lead to them results, like they’ll ask arsenal players about winning the league obviously they’ll say one game at a time cus if they change their mentality from that it might unnerve them

    I am a Liverpool fan, it's great to see a player that isn't bothered about money. Turned down Newcastle and other big offers, and gone to help a proper old school football club out. Hope he helps for promotion

      Turned down Newcastle because he would have had to leave his family behind. Nothing to do with anything else at all

      Dave C 2 months ago +10

      @Luke Miller I'm not keen on the prospect of the club being owned by Qatar. It wouldn't feel like my club any more. Just my personal opinion.

      Spurs was blocked by prem think he would have gone but spurs wanted him great person to have around the club as well it's all fell into places for Wrexham could see him staying he can play do what he likes can really only have to go train two days a week play plus games.

    Mr. Foster came to my attention via his youtube channel two years ago. Watched his content fairly regularly, even when he was retired. Super excited for your club. What an outstanding stand-in, if you will. Ha! Can't wait to see the gopro in the goal at the Racecourse!!

      @James Harris And not just any Prem keeper, he holds the record for most saves in the Premier League era (with 1248, 121 ahead of De Gea who is 2nd).
      Really a quality move by Wrexham management.
