Wesley Andrew "Wes" Foderingham (born 14 January 1991) is an English professional footballer who plays as a goalkeeper for Scottish Premiership club Rangers. He is a former England U19 international.

Foderingham was with Fulham and Crystal Palace as a young player, but did not make a league appearance for either club. After playing on loan for a number of non-league clubs, he signed for Swindon Town and made over 160 appearances in the Football League for the Wiltshire club. In July 2015, Foderingham signed a three-year contract with Scottish club Rangers upon being released by Swindon.

Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Foderingham was born in Hammersmith, London.[1] He started with Fulham in their youth squad before moving on loan to Bromley.[2] After being released by Fulham,[3] Foderingham signed his first professional contract with Crystal Palace in August 2010,[4] before going on loan with Histon in March 2011.[5]

In October 2011 he signed on loan with Swindon Town until January 2012 to cover for injured keeper Phil Smith,[6] making his debut on 15 October 2011 against Accrington Stanley.[7] During his time on loan in 15 games for Swindon, Foderingham conceded just six goals and kept nine clean sheets. This prompted Swindon manager Paolo Di Canio to buy the keeper for an undisclosed sum on 6 January 2012, on a contract running until July 2014.[8]

Swindon Town[edit]

There were fears that such a record would prompt other clubs to beat Swindon Town to his signature, but Foderingham had no doubt in his mind which club he wanted to sign for. Following an abject performance against Stoke City in the League Cup, in which Swindon won 4–3, he was substituted in the very next game after twenty-one minutes, with Swindon two goals down. Foderingham reacted angrily to his substitution; kicking a water bottle as he left the pitch and refusing to acknowledge his manager. Manager Di Canio then publicly criticised Foderingham after the game and claimed that if he did not apologise for his actions, he would be 'out' of the club.[9][10] Foderingham later issued an apology, which was accepted by Di Canio.[11]

Foderingham was released by Swindon Town at the end of the 2014–15 season upon the expiry of his contract.[12]

Rangers[edit]

On 3 July 2015, Foderingham signed a three-year contract with then Scottish Championship club Rangers. He made his debut for the Ibrox club in a 6–2 win over Hibernian in the first round of the Scottish Challenge Cup and was Rangers' first choice goalkeeper over Cammy Bell under new Rangers manager Mark Warburton.[13] On 19 July 2016, Foderingham extended his contract with Rangers for another year until 2019.[14]

International career[edit]

Foderingham has represented England at various levels including England U19s.[citation needed]

Personal life[edit]

He is a supporter of Newcastle United.[15]
