OZIE Foster gave the Mildenhall faithful something to remember him by, smashing in a hat-trick in his farewell match.

Mildenhall, looking to keep pressure on leaders Wroxham before their crucial top of the table clash on Saturday, featured former Colchester United defender Simon Betts, making his second appearance for the club after signing from Halstead Town.

Foster, set to join Sudbury, met a Betts' cross with a stunning volley in the 20th minute to open the scoring.

Woodbridge capitalised on a defensive mix up to pull level early in the second half and then went ahead with a penalty after a Betts foul.

Foster popped up to equalise and then fire the visitors into the lead by finishing well after Lee Wilson's free-kick was headed across the area by Craig Hammond.

After Woodbridge pulled level again, Matty Clements headed the winner from another Wilson free-kick in the final minute.

Mildenhall lost 2-1 away to Leiston on Tuesday.
