He said: “The honest truth is that my performances this season haven’t reached the level I demand of myself and I feel that now is the right time to retire.

“At the forefront of my mind when making this decision, was not only what was best for me but also the club, and making the decision now gives the club every opportunity to assess their options before the window closes.

“Wrexham will always have a special place in my heart.”

Hollywood superstar and Wrexham co-owner Reynolds has since shared his love for the goalkeeper in a heartfelt social media post.

The 46-year-old tweeted: “He built memories I’ll never let go of for as long as I live. I love this guy. Thank you for everything, Ben.”

Foster initially retired last September after leaving Watford as a free agent.

However, he returned to the pitch in March to sign a short-term deal with Wrexham.

The goalkeeper went on to help the Red Dragons achieve promotion back to the Football League for the first time in 15 years.


And he subsequently penned a new one-year contract after returning from the club’s epic promotion party in Las Vegas.

But just two games into the 2023-24 League Two campaign, he has decided to hang up his boots for good.

Before signing for Wrexham, Foster spent four years with Watford.

During his time at Vicarage Road, he started a YouTube channel called ‘Ben Foster – The Cycling GK’ where he uploads in-game footage from his perspective as a goalkeeper.

He also previously played for West Brom, Birmingham and Manchester United.
