Earl Jude Jean (born 9 October 1971) is a Saint Lucian former footballer who played as a striker. He made 21 appearances in the Primeira Divisão for Felgueiras, 84 in the Football League for Ipswich Town, Rotherham United and Plymouth Argyle, and five in the Scottish Premier League for Hibernian. Jean played for Saint Lucia at full international level.



Earl famously told the local media that despite his short stature he could leap very high - he was therefore nicknamed 'The Flea'. In December 1996 he made his only appearance for Ipswich Town, coming on as a substitute in a 1–1 home draw against Stoke City.


He was leading scorer for Rotherham United F.C. during the 1996–97 season, prior to moving to Plymouth Argyle F.C. in 1997.[1]

International career[edit]

He was a member of the Saint Lucia national team from 1992 to 2004.

Coaching career[edit]

After his retirement in December 2009 began his coaching career as Assistant coach of his former Saint Lucia national team Head coach Stuart Charles Fevrier by W Connection.[2]
