Foster back again for the Corey New Cup

By ADAM HICKS IT is more than 20 years since Craig Foster played competitive soccer on the Far North Coast.

But the former Goonellabah player, who went on the represent the Socceroos, is returning to play in a trial match today.

As he did last year, Foster will be in Lismore for the game between Goonellabah and Workers to help raise funds for the Southern Cross LADS charity.

The game is a mark of respect to Corey New, one of four Kadina High School students killed in a car crash in 2006.

Corey played for both clubs and was a well-liked character in local soccer.

Foster will be playing for his former club Goonellabah. The premier division match starts at 5pm at Weston Park, Goonellabah. The reserves will play from 3pm.
