Ben signed from Basingstoke Town in the summer of 2021 after impressing in the Hampshire Invitational Tournament.
An experienced and strong left-back, who can also operate as the left-sided centre-back, Ben played at Wembley in a National League Promotion Play-Off Final for Forest Green Rovers against Grimsby Town in 2016, alongside his former Totton teammate Brett Williams.
He captained the team on occasions but a combination of injuries and suspension curtailed Ben’s involvement towards the end of the 2021/22 season, causing him to sit out the Southampton Senior Cup Final.
Having re-signed for the Stags for 2022/23, Ben used the summer rest followed by a full pre-season campaign and some games with Totton & Eling on dual registration to regain his match fitness in time to return to AFC Totton first team action by mid-October.
