Lescinel Jean-Francois' personal torment in Wembley build-up

WHILE Town’s play-off final defeat at Wembley on Saturday prompted tears of disappointment on the pitch and in the stands, the emotion for one player went far deeper than just 90 minutes of football.

Lecsinel Jean-Francois had been battling to come to terms with the tragic news that the body of his 11-year-old sister Erika, who went missing in the Haiti earthquake in January, had been finally been found.

Having kept the news almost entirely to himself, the defender performed heroically at Charlton in the play-off semi-final second leg, before returning to France where he and his family buried Erika.
