Ben Foster praises Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney after performing Wrexham U-turn
Ben Foster has heaped praise on Wrexham co-owners Ryan Reynolds and Rob McElhenney after the experienced goalkeeper performed a U-turn to sign a new one-year deal.
Foster, 40, came out of retirement back in March to pen a short-term contract with the Red Dragons until the end of the season. He came in after first-choice 'keeper Rob Lainton suffered an unfortunate injury as Wrexham battled Notts County in an enthralling National League title race.
Wrexham earned promotion back to League Two for the first time since 2008 after beating Boreham Wood 3-1 back in April. It capped off a remarkable campaign for the Red Dragons, and although Foster made just eight appearances, his last-minute penalty save against Notts County will be remembered for decades.
With speculation rising surrounding his future, Foster has put those rumours to bed by signing a new deal - and he decided to praise Reynolds and McElhenney when asked about his contract.
