Starting his career at Plymouh Argyle, Ben signed his first professional contract at Swindon Town and only made 8 appearences before several Premier League clubs made offers for him including Everton and Newcastle United.

18-year-old Ben moved to St James' Park in 2008 and was then loaned out on two occasions to Northampton Town before switching to Sixfields permanantly in 2011.

Tozer spent 5 injury hit years at the midlands club, reaching the League 2 Play Off Final, before he was eventually released in 2015 after the arrival of Chris Wilder.

Even though Ben prefers to play in midfield he can also play as a right-back which provides great versatility to his game.
