Stockport, SK3 9DD

Ben has been described by manager Jim Gannon as ‘probably the best goalkeeper in non-league’. He has kept 29 clean sheets in his first two season, having joined the Hatters in May 2016 after four very successful years with AFC Fylde, including four successive Play-Off campaigns and being named in the Divisional Team of the Year every season. He started his career under Billy Davies at Preston North End before following Davies to Derby County. He enjoyed a spell at Oxford United then moved back to Lancashire to play for Bamber Bridge before joining former County striker Andy Preece at Northwich Victoria, replacing James Spencer as Vic’s number one.
Six-foot-one Ben, a full-time lorry driver, will forever be a hero to the Fylde fans, having scored the winning spot-kick in the 2014 Play-Off final penalty shootout against Ashton United which catapulted the Coasters into the Conference North. He also scored a 60-yard wonder goal in the 2013 Play-Off semi-final, which won Fylde’s Goal of the Season award.
