Foggon was born in West Pelton, County Durham. He graduated from the junior and reserve sides at Newcastle United to make his first-team debut just days before his 18th birthday, in a 0–0 draw at Arsenal. A schoolboy sprint champion, Foggon's moment of glory came in the second leg of the 1969 Inter-Cities Fairs Cup Final in Budapest when his shot was pushed onto the crossbar by the Ujpest 'keeper, but the United man followed up to lash the ball into the net and make it 3–2 on the night, 6–2 on aggregate.
He moved on to Cardiff City,in August 1971, but within a year had returned to the North East, signing for Jack Charlton's Middlesbrough, side. Foggon became a favourite of the Ayresome Park crowd and helped the Teessiders to promotion from Division Two in 1974.
After brief stints with Rochester Lancers and Hartford Bicentennials in the United States, Foggon moved to Manchester United in 1976. That proved to be something of a disaster though and after just three league outings at Old Trafford he switched to Sunderland.
He finished his career as one of only a few players who have played for all three of the North East's big three clubs.
Remaining on South Tyneside, Foggon then worked in the security business and the pub trade, in Spennymoor and South Shields.
