8 international caps for Jamaica, member of 2019 Gold Cup semi-finalist squad

Sacramento, Calif. – Sacramento Republic FC announced today that Winger Maalique Foster will join the Indomitable Club, pending league and federation approval. Per club policy, the terms of the contract were not disclosed.

“Maalique is a rising talent that we believe is poised for a breakout 2021 season,” said Republic FC General Manager Todd Dunivant. “His ability to stretch the defense will add a new dimension to our attack, and we are excited to add his consistent scoring production to our team.”

The 24-year-old midfielder has experience on both wings, as well as a central forward. He joins Republic after a season on loan with Ironi Kiryat Shmona of the Israeli Premier League. He joined the club in January mid-campaign for 13 appearances, after a season in the Costa Rican Primera División Apertura with Santos de Guápiles FC where he netted 5 goals in 12 matches. Foster spent the first half of the 2019 USL Championship season on loan with Rio Grande Valley FC Toros where he netted three goals and four assists in eleven matches. Prior to his USL debut, he joined Houston Dynamo’s first team preseason camp. In eleven matches, he was inserted into the starting lineup ten times and earned two USL Championship Team of the Week selections (Week 7 and 11).

Foster has been called into service for the Reggae Boyz, Jamaica’s national team – for eight matches with five appearances. In his 2018 international debut, Foster scored against South Korea to earn a 2-2 draw. He was a member of the 2019 Gold Cup semi-finalist roster and CONCACAF Nations League B and qualifying squads.

The St. Catherine, Jamaica-native made his professional debut for Portmore United of Jamaica’s National Premier League, where he claimed a domestic trophy in 2017-18 and was a key contributor with two goals in Scotiabank Concacaf League play.
