Tributes to ex-Boston United winger Ludovic Quistin, who was killed four days after his 28th birthday

TRIBUTES have been paid to ‘popular’ former Boston United winger Ludovic Quistin, who was killed in a motor vehicle accident.

The winger - an ex-Guadeloupe international - is reported to have been killed in a road traffic accident on Monday, just four days after his 28th birthday.

“He was a very decent lad and a good, talented footballer,” said Boston United general manager John Blackwell.

Quistin joined Boston at the start of the 2007-08 season, joining Tommy Taylor’s rebuilding of the club following their double demotion from the Football League into the Blue Square Bet North.

He made six appearances before moving on to Swindon Supermarine.

He later turned out against United for Hednesford Town and FC United of Manchester.

And Blackwell said that on his return to York Street with the latter, his affinity with the club was still evident.

He added: “When he came back he still showed an interest in the club.

“He wanted to know how things were going and how we progressed.

“He was always popular here.”

Quistin is reported to have been killed in a road traffic accident in Bouliqui on the Grande Terre Island on Monday.

He was capped nine times by his country.
