Kester Imbert Erysthee, who served as a goalkeeper on the St Lucia National Football team, is being remembered by the St Lucia Football Association (SLFA) as a committed, outstanding and influential sportsman.

Erysthee, of Vieux Fort, passed away on June 7, 2013 at the South Miami Hospital in Miami, Florida. He was 37.

In a condolence message, the SLFA said that the former goalkeeper was “one with whom most of the players enjoyed a positive relationship”. He had served on the national team for several years and was selected after outstanding performances while representing the Roots Alley and Fort South Teams, the SLFA said.

Erysthee had played alongside players such as Earl Jean, Bolo Flavius, Baba Lastic, Elijah Joseph, Alvin Xavier, Titus Elva, Andy Jn.Baptiste T-Loy, among others.

He was also the captain of both the Roots Alley and Vieux Fort teams for some time.

“The St. Lucia Football Association mourns his loss and on behalf of the football fraternity we extend our deepest sympathies to the family and friends of Kester Erysthee.”
