WREXHAM captain Luke Young has paid tribute to retiring goalkeeper Ben Foster.

Foster announced his retirement after Saturday’s 5-5 draw at home to Swindon Town, saying: “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.”

Young praised Foster for his honesty, adding that it was a privilege to be a team-mate of the former England and Manchester United number one.

“It was a shock,” admitted Young. “His decision came all of the sudden and one I wasn’t expecting.

“But it’s a sign of what a great bloke he is and fair play to him for being so honest.

“I won’t forget him and who will ever forget that penalty save against Notts County?

“I’d just like to wish him all the best in what he does in the future with his podcast and cycling.”

Notts County striker Macaulay Langstaff, who pipped Wrexham’s Paul Mullin to the National League golden boot last season, said he never had any worries where his next goal was coming from after making the leap up to League Two.

Langstaff, who fired 42 goals as County finished runners-up to Wrexham before gaining promotion via the play-offs, scored twice as County beat Doncaster 3-1 at the weekend.

“It’s been three games, but it hasn’t been bothering me as much as people expect,” he told BBC Radio Nottingham.

“As a forward I think because of the amount of goals I scored last year it was probably made a bigger deal out of.”

Accrington Stanley midfielder Sean McConville has been ruled out for about three months.

The 34-year-old former Chester star was stretchered off in last Saturday’s 2-1 win over Harrogate.
