WHAT HAPPENED? Foster was central to Wrexham's promotion, as he saved a last-minute penalty against Notts County to put the club on the verge of the title. After the club were confirmed as champions, they jetted to Vegas, and the ex-Manchester United goalkeeper believes the cost would have exceeded half a million pounds.

WHAT THEY SAID: Speaking on The Fellas Podcast, he said: "The way that Rob McElhenney and Ryan put it on for us, laid it on for us, was just like nothing I've ever seen. We got there and it was just straight to the shower, straight get changed, go to Hakkasan for dinner and then we're going to Hakkasan nightclub straight afterwards. All expenses paid. 

"Got to be £500,000, had to be at least half a million genuinely it had to be because they just looked after everything."
