MBC Sports has confirmed that another member of the football fraternity has passed on. A post on the Facebook page of the St. Lucia Football Association reads:
“It is with deep sadness that we mourn the sudden death of Mr. Mc Millan Medard, Referee Development Officer at the Saint Lucia Football Association Inc. He was the lead and a trainer for the SLFA Referee Training Program which is now ongoing via Zoom. Mr. Medard died suddenly on his Farm yesterday. We extend our condolences to his wife and family.”
Last week the sports fraternity was plunged into mourning on word that St. Lucia’s first Sportswoman of the year Joyce Auguste was found dead at her residence. On Monday, young basketball player Joyeaux Jn. Jaques was also found dead, this time at Vigie Beach. Last weekend, the community of Marchand and the rest of St. Lucia learnt of the passing of former national footballer and referee Hilary Franko St. Martin. Now, a nation mourns the passing of yet another contributor to the development of sports on the island.
May he rest in Peace!
