Foster sets new target following 150th start

Baggies keeper reflects on Albion milestone

BEN Foster is hoping to see out his playing days at Albion. 

The Baggies No.1 made his 150th start for the club in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Sunderland at the Stadium of Light in the Premier League.

Foster, who joined from Birmingham City in June 2012 following a season-long loan, won the hearts of the Hawthorns faithful with a string of impressive displays between the sticks.

Not content with the milestone, the keeper is keen to clock up another 150 appearances for Albion and says he would like to remain at the club until the end of his professional career.

“I was really happy to make my 150th appearance for the club against Sunderland,” said Foster.

“I hope that there is another 150 to come to be honest with you.

“I’m still feeling ok and I have got to a place where I can now manage my own body and make sure I am ready for a game on Saturday.

“If that means missing one or two training sessions in the week, then I know myself, that’s what I have to do.

“It’s a good achievement to make and I have loved my time here.

“This is the club I would like finish my career at.”

Foster saw his side take one point from the clash with the Black Cats in the Baggies’ most recent top flight fixture.

And Albion’s stopper is satisfied with the number of points on the board after seven Premier League matches.

“It’s the international break now and it would have been nice to go in to it with three points behind us.

“Saying that, nine points from our first seven games in this league, that’s not too bad at all.”
