Boro sign Luke Foster
Former Mansfield captain signs on free transfer
BORO have signed former Mansfield captain Luke Foster.
Graham Westley had tried to sign the no-nonsense defender in the January transfer window from Oxford United, where he had played 99 games over three seasons, only for Foster to sign for the Stags on an 18 month deal.
The 24-year-old’s time at Field Mill was cut short by ‘mutual consent’ earlier this month, however, just a few days after Foster apologised for calling the club a “shambles” on his Facebook page.
That remark resulted in chairman Andy Perry rebuking the defender, saying: “I don’t think his last three or four games were anything to sing home about and he went home with a flea in his ear and maybe didn’t take it very well. But as captain he has got to stand up and be counted.”

He had made 16 starts for the Stags.
Foster is the second defender Boro have signed this summer following the acquisition of Darius Charles in May.
