Trinidad's national goalkeeper Earl Carter has signed a lucrative contract to play professionally for the crack North American Soccer League Champions, Cosmos, Secretary of Trinidad and Tobago Football Association Jack Warner confirmed today. Warner said Carter has been released by the association and agreed to by United States Soccer Federation Secretary, Kurt Lamm.

Carter left here two weeks ago for trials with Cosmos and he impressed Cosmos' talent scouts with a fine performance for Cosmos against the Mexican Team, Autonoma De Guadalajara at Kezar Stadium.

Cosmos, who visited Trinidad earlier this year, are currently in second spot in the National Conference Division, behind Washington Diplomats, in the League Series.
