    Ah I loved Craig, so sad when he had to give up. I used to go and watch every game when he played. My mum even orgainsed him & Frank Yallop to be special guests at my 18th Birthday party, that was 20 odd years ago, a fab night :-)

  • Retired from the game after leaving West Ham in 2002

    I really liked Craig, an excellent shot stopper, just a bit shy when coming off his line. Very nice guy, got his autograph, I wish him all the best

  • Forrest, who retired in 2002, could be making a comeback with Major League Soccer side Toronto FC where, if signed, he would be back-up to first choice keeper Greg Sutton

  • The former Town keeper, who helped his home nation Canada win the Gold Cup in 2000, is to be inducted into the Canadian Soccer Hall of Fame in May, 2007

    I have been a big fan of Craigs for years and i have met him many times. He was always friendly, and funny. He remembered me each and everytime and he always said hello. He even gave me a birthday kiss one year!!!!. A great player for Town and Canada and i hope he is well after the past few years.

    Craig is now a Soccer Pundit for the TSN in Canada. Thankfully his on-air delivery is slightly less rushed than his upfield clearances!
