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

Foster 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.

In an official statement on the Wrexham Website, Foster 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.
