Foster back to where it all began

By MARK ROBINSON

FORMER Socceroo captain Craig Foster made a surprise guest appearance for his old club Goonellabah as part of the inaugural Corey New Cup fundraiser held at Weston Park, Lismore on Saturday.

A big crowd was on hand to watch Goonellabah and Lismore Workers' Grade 16 sides play out a 2-all draw in the tribute match, before Foster made his unannounced appearance in the premier division trial between the two clubs that followed.

Foster played a full match, cruising around in midfield and having a major impact on the game, while barely raising a sweat.

His sublime skills were appreciated not just by the crowd but also by both sets of players and particularly Goonellabah coach Brendan Logan.

"He even took time out after the game to chat about patterns of play and what he was trying to do out there, and it was a great experience for the players from both sides," Logan said.

Possibly due to Foster's presence, the Hornets looked sharp and emerged 3-1 winners from an open, entertaining game.
