Alex Forster Retirement

Published on: May 03 2018 | Author: Joseph Marciano |

Norwood 2014 Premiership Player, Alex Forster has decided to officially retire from SANFL Football effective immediately.

Alex has been extremely disappointed and frustrated with the inability of his body to stand up to the rigours of SANFL football after sustaining injury after injury over the last twelve months.

Forster, who played an integral role in the 2014 Premiership, has decided to finish up his career at Norwood having played 56 senior games and kicking six goals.

Forster started his career at Norwood in 2011 before being drafted to Fremantle as the 29th Selection in the 2011 AFL Draft.

After spending both 2012 and 2013 at the Dockers, Forster returned home in 2014.

Alex played in defence in the 2014 flag victory and as the years progressed honed his craft playing on the wing and in the forward 50 at times.

One of Alex’s greatest strengths was his deadeye kick and ability to hit a target under pressure.

The Norwood Football Club would like to thank Alex for his contribution over the years and wish him all the best in the future.
