WREXHAM AFC star Ben Foster has revealed that he was gifted a super-rare piece of memorabilia following the club's promotion back to the English Football League.

The former England international goalkeeper came out of retirement to make a return to Wrexham back in March.

One of the highlights of his comeback was the dramatic stoppage-time penalty save he produced against fellow promotion-chasers Notts County in a 3-2 win.

That was a huge moment in the season as Wrexham pushed all the way to a record-breaking 111 points.

A 3-1 win over Boreham Wood on April 22 was enough to see the Reds promoted as National League champions.

Foster, who has played for the likes of Manchester United, West Bromwich Albion and Watford in the Premier League previously, has proved to be inspirational to the side.

And one of the club's star owners has certainly recognised his contributions to the team.


It all started when, following Wrexham's 3-1 win over Boreham Wood to secure the league title, Reynolds crashed Foster's press conference and demanded his shirt.

Since then, Foster revealed has revealed that the Wrexham owner also gave him a present - a glove he wore on the set of Deadpool.

Speaking on his Fozcast podcast, he said: "Ryan Reynolds, he text me the morning of the game to say, 'Can I have your shirt'.

I was like, 'Yeah, cool'. He was like, 'Cool, because I've got something for you as well'. I was like, 'OK? What on earth's this?'

“He texted me again yesterday saying he forgot to tell me what the gift was at the time. He told me; 'I was going through my memorabilia the other day of Deadpool, and I found the original gloves that I wore in the film.'

"The Deadpool gloves, his whole outfit's pretty famous, really, isn't it?

"And he said, 'I gave one of the gloves to a guy with terminal cancer the other day, but the other one I wanna give to you... because I see you give your gloves away all the time and you never get given back in return'.

“I was buzzing so much. So this [the glove] is going in a frame in the Foster household.”
