Juste the tonic! Boston United performances could help Jason fulfil Sugar Boyz Caribbean Cup dream

Jason St Juste hopes that turning in top performances for Boston United can see him continue living his international dream.

Over the years not too many Pilgrims players can boast about representing their country, or winning silverware at Wembley.

But St Juste - who won the FA trophy with North Ferriby in 2015 and represents Saint Kitts and Nevis - has both on his CV.

“Not many people get that opportunity, especially playing for their national team,” said St Juste, who qualifies for the Caribbean country through his father.

“I mean, I’m thankful for that, and the Wembley experience was amazing - my first time there.

“Hopefully, we can do it again this season.”

St Juste was part of the Sugar Boyz squad - along with former Pilgrims striker Zeph Thomas - which qualified for the third round of the Caribbean Cup following victories against Suriname and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines last month.

And he hopes that some eyecatching turns in an amber shirt will convince the selectors he should be involved in the group games against French Guiana and Haiti in early October, where the side which finishes on top will book their place the final stages next year.

“It’s a great feeling (to play international football), we’re still in the Caribbean Cup, into the next round,” St Juste added.

“It’s a great feeling.

“It’s not like league football, it’s more slower. The termpo is slower, but not many players have the opportunity.

“I’ve got that and am thankful for it.”

St Juste know that his dreams of helping Saint Kitts and Nevis reach the final stages of the competition for members of the Caribbean Football Union will only come true if he continues to play well in the National League North.

“I’d like to be involved,” he added. “I don’t know if I’ll get called up or not, but we’re still in it.

“I need to wait and see. Hopefully, I can kick off at Boston and do well here.

“Hopefully, that can help me.”

St Juste arrived at Boston this summer along with fellow former Bradford Park Avenue teammates Lamin Colley and Callum Chippendale, even helping get Colley the move.

And he believes both players can make their mark for the Pilgrims this term.

He added: “They’re both good players on the ball.

“I think they can do well. If they get the service then they will both be good players for the club.”
