“Star” Browne’s Funeral Set for Thursday

According to family sources the body of the late former coach will be available for viewing at the St. George Anglican Church on Cayon Street, Basseterre, at 2:00pm while the actual service is due to commence at 3:0pm.

In the meantime, more tributes have been pouring in from former colleagues, friends and football officials locally and overseas. In his tribute to Mr. Browne, former President of the St. Kitts and Nevis Football Association, Peter Jenkins said in a release that “Star” Browne will be remembered for his influence on football and he will also be surely missed in the development of the sport.

Jenkins said in his release that Browne, “During his many years as a coach with the SKNFA, collaborated with many overseas coaches, including Dick Howard, Mick Wadsworth, Cess Podd, Lenny Taylor and Eric Winstanley.”

Jenkins said “Star” was among the first in the modern era to have studied the modern coaching methods which resulted in his crowning moment in 1993 in Jamaica when he took St. Kitts/Nevis to the Finals against Martinique in the Shell Caribbean Cup.

Browne was also praised by Jenkins for his contribution to youth football, development of a female squad and establishment of various clinics that have produced many outstanding players.

Elvis “Star” Browne for a number of years had been ailing due to the complications that resulted from a stroke.

At the time of his death last week, he was hospitalized at the Joseph N France Hospital for about three weeks.
