This week’s player spotlight is Saint Kitts and Nevis international Jason St Juste. Born 21 September 1985 in Leeds, St Juste is a Kittitian footballer who currently plays for National League North side Boston United.
St Juste began his career at Garforth Town, becoming a graduate of the Leeds Brazilian Soccer School’s program, which also produced star player Micah Richards. League 2 side Darlington spotted St Juste and signed him in 2004.
On 19 March 2005 St Juste made his seventh appearance for Darlington in an away match against Grimsby Town, scoring his first goal for the club. St Juste hit headlines by scooping a hat-trick of awards. He walked away with the young player of the season and both goal of the season awards for his wonder-strike against Grimsby Town and his breath-taking goal against Bristol Rovers at the Memorial Ground in the exciting three all draw.
After his contract ran out St Juste signed with Southampton, but failed to appear for the side and re-joined Garforth Town in November 2006.
Three years later St Juste left England for Norway and joined Sandnes Ulf in 2009. After two years with the first division Norwegian side, the winger returned to England with Chester FC on a loan spell. After this didn’t work out St Juste joined FC Halifax town in 2011.
Despite coming on from the bench in most games, Jason was able to score in two games for the Shaymen, at home to Blyth Spartans and away at Corby Town In the 2012–13 season, St Juste started more games due to a groin injury to Scott McManus, but this meant playing in an unfamiliar left back position. St Juste had a very strong start to the season, including a goal against Chelmsford City in the FA Trophy Third Round, but a hernia meant that he would spend a month on the side-lines.
He then joined Bradford Park Avenue AFC in 2015, then the next year joined Boston United where he has appeared 16 times so far this term for the Pilgrims.
St Juste has represented Saint Kitts and Nevis 5 times, with the first time coming in the 2014 Caribbean Cup qualification.
