Goalkeeper’s Cut: Ben Foster

richard lee ben foster

It was about time Rich had one of his close pals on the show.

Having spent a couple of seasons together in Ben Foster’s first spell at Watford, the pair reflect on the early stages of their goalkeeping careers in this episode.

Now back at Vicarage Road, Ben discusses his transition from full-time chef to full-time goalkeeper, how he dealt with conceding that goal from fellow No1 Paul Robinson and why social media can be a dangerous tool for young players in the game.

There’s also one key life lesson to be had: play with a smile.
