Forster ReleasedMark Forster has been released from Warrington Wolves. Mark made his debut for 'the Wire' back in 1982 - 83 season. He is the only player remaining in the game who has scored a 3-point try!Mark was once the fastest man in the game, which earned him 190 tries in his career at Wilderspool. Mark has also played two games for GB in 1987 and is a current international for Ireland, having been named in the squad for the World Cup 2000 squad.Darryl Van De Velde, Director of Football commented on Mark Forster's long standing service, "Mark has been a loyal and great servant to the game, in particular Warrington, one of the most consistent players during my time with the Wolves and I would like to take this opportunity to thank him for his contribution to the club over his amazing 20 seasons, a great achievement in anyone's playing career."Unfortunately, during the 1999 season Mark has been dogged by injuries, he has had a broken arm this season which meant that he missed most of the season, even now I don't feel that arm is right. This has been one of the deciding factors in deciding not to offer Mark a contract for the 2001 season."His Super League career has come to an end with the Wolves, but I have to look to the future and the future is with the youth of the team, they are the way forward." Mark will be holding a Testimonial Match at Wilderspool at the end of January 2001; more details will be available closer to the date.Everyone at Warrington Wolves would like to thank Mark Forster for the last twenty seasons and wishes him every success in the future.
