Tributes poured in yesterday for
deceased national footballer Kevon Carter,
who passed away this morning after suf-
fering a heart attack while in training with
the Defence Force Football club.
"No words can really describe how we
feel about the death of another one of our
sons, a young man who was vibrant and
was a valuable member of our country s
national team," TTFA president Raymond
Tim Kee said.
"I was indeed very shocked when I
received the news earlier today and this will
be a most difficult period for his family, his
teammates, his friends and we must support
them in whatever way possible. Losing
someone, especially in such circumstances
is never something that is easy to handle.
His family and everyone else close to him
are in our thoughts and prayers."
National coach Stephen Hart said: "Kevon
will be a definite loss on and off the field.
He s been in my squad going back to the
Gold Cup last year and of course over a
period of time dealing with players, you get
to know them better and this is indeed very
sad and sudden loss for us."
Former national coach and player Russell
Latapy, who was at the helm of the senior
team when Carter was a member, said that
the player had true potential.
"I would like to express condolences to
his family and friends. I got the news in
Scotland just after midday and it was fact
a shocker for me. He was a player at the
time with great potential and lots of pace.
He will definitely be missed," Latapy said.
English-based winger Carlos Edwards, a
former Defence Force player himself, also
"It s unbelievable to me at this time. Another
Defence Force player and teammate who I enjoyed
being around and playing with. I cannot begin to
imagine what everyone close to him may be going
through right now. It shows us that life is precious
on and off the football field. He got into difficulty
doing what he loved most and we have to remember
him for what he was," Edwards said.
Notts County midfielder Andre Boucaud met Carter
for the first time last year during the team s tour to
Romania and Estonia. He was deeply saddened.
"I knew him for that short space of time but obvi-
ously we had spent a lot of time together for the
friendlies and the Gold Cup and so on. He was always
a very cool and decent individual. I think his loss a
terrible one. And for us as footballers, it s frightening
to some extent because you re seeing guys just popping
up with this kind of medical problem that has proven
to be fatal. We ve got to be extremely careful about
everything we do as athletes now," said the 29-year-
