Joined Sells
January 2014

Foster came through the ranks with Stoke City but made his professional debut on loan at Kidderminster Harriers in 2004.

He then won the Football League Trophy on loan at League One Wrexham in 2005 and his form caught the eye of Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.

Ben moved to Old Trafford for £1m that summer and went on to make 12 Premier League appearances during five years at the club.

His spell with the Red Devils was punctuated by loan spells at Watford during the 2005/06 season – helping the side win promotion to the Premier League – and the 2006/07 campaign, where he made 29 top-flight appearances.

Foster joined Birmingham City on a permanent deal in 2010 and in his one season led the Blues to a famous League Cup final victory over Arsenal at Wembley.

Seven seasons of Premier League football then followed at West Bromwich Albion, where he made over 200 league appearances, and he was twice voted Player of the Season.

Following the Baggies’ relegation, he returned to Watford in the summer of 2018, where he was installed as the club’s first-choice keeper.
