LONDON, United Kingdom, Sep 19 – Former Burton Albion defender Kelvin Maynard has been shot and killed in Amsterdam, Dutch police have confirmed.

The 32-year-old was shot in his car and police are appealing for witnesses as they search for two suspects who they say escaped on a black scooter.

Officers from a nearby fire station tried to help Maynard but he later died of his injuries.

The Dutch-Surinamese player, who also had a spell at Royal Antwerp, was at non-league Dutch club Alphense Boys.

Maynard joined Burton in November 2014 following Dutchman Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s appointment as manager.

Injury restricted him to 10 appearances as the Brewers won the 2014-15 League Two title before he was ruled out for the following campaign after suffering a knee injury in a pre-season game.

He left Burton in January 2017 to join Dutch side Spakenburg.
