Here is my best explanation:

'forward's' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'goal topped by striker's header' is the subsidiary indication.

'goal' becomes 'end' ('end' can be a synonym of 'goal').

'topped by' means one lot of letters go next to another.

'striker's header' becomes 's' (I can't explain this - if you can you should give a lot more credence to this answer).

'end' after 's' is 'send'.

This clue was last seen in The Independent

(Other definitions for send that I've seen before include "Post", "Despatch, remit", "Cause to go for", "Sentence to a prison term", "broadcast", "Transmit; post", "Mail", "Dispatch by post", "Remit" and "Consign".)
