Foden: I’ve loved every minute

Travis PerkinsSponsored by Travis Perkins

Upon leading the Saints out to victory at Sixways, Ben Foden joined an elite group of players to represent the club on 200 occasions - something he says is an honour.

The full back, who coincidentally made his debut for the Saints in a Premiership win over Worcester back in 2008, has been a stalwart in the years that have followed and reflected on his time in black, green and gold with fondness.

“It means I’m really old, doesn’t it?” he joked. “Obviously it’s great. I’ve been here through thick and thin, through all our successes and failures, and I’ve loved every minute. I think I’m only the 55th man to achieve it so it’s nice to go down in the history books. 

“Thanks to the club and thanks to all the supporters, because Iv’e carved out a great career for myself here. I went on to play for England, decided to play full back - eventually! - and I’m a Northampton Saintsman through and through.

“It’s a club I’ll support for the rest of my life so I’m delighted to get to that milestone.”

The Saints are back at home on Friday evening for the Aviva Premiership visit of Newcastle. CLICK HERE to book your tickets as they look to go five in a row!
