Kiyan Prince 1991-2006
We will sadly never see his true potential, we will never see him score in front of the Loft, we will never have the pleasure of singing his name nor discussing his performance over a beer. The QPR community feel as if we have lost one of our own. With the deepest sympathy to Kiyan's family, may he rest in peace. - Berkshire Hoop
Even after time has passed I cannot begin to put my anger and sorrow about what happened to Kiyan into words. Not only must our club and its supporters not forget him, it's important that society remembers what happened to this magnificent young man as well. A tragic loss to his family, friends and team mates at QPR. RIP. - NorthernR, Site Editor.

Our thoughts are with his family and friends who must be in deep shock, as we all are in the QPR family, God bless you Kiyan. R.I.P

Alb Ranger This is beyond sad. Condolences to all his family.

Hayes Hoop I'd just like to echo my fellow Rangers fan that it is a nice touch that fans of other teams have posted their messages of condolences. I think Joe Gallen summed it well by saying "it's a big loss to QPR, but an even bigger loss to his family". If anyone from Kiyan's family are reading these messages, please take our sincere condolences, we are all with you. R.I.P Kiyan Prince It is such a tragic waste of a young man's life. I've just thought how I would be feeling right now if that was my brother or sister.......words fail me

QPR Mick A terrible loss, RIP Kiyan.
Johnjo1 RIP KIAN. Thoughts to family and friends.
Trom What a waste of human life. Sadly it seems to be more and more common on London's streets. We seem to have a generation of youth that has few morals, no respect and seems to believe that the world owes them something. To snuff out such promise before it has a chance to shine is a terrible shame. All thought to his family and friends.
Superhooper911 R.I.P Kiyan it would of been interested seeing him in the Loft. Thoughts with all that knew him.
Ginga Hoop Sad, sad, sad. Just leaves you feeling helpless.

Wokingham R Shocking and tragic news. RIP Kiyan. Condolences to your family and friends.
Lord of the Rangers Very sad indeed, there needs to be a real concerted effort around the country to highlight how much damage a knife can actually do, I doubt that many young people realise the dangers when they leave the house with a knife! It has to stop! R.I.P Kiyan Prince.
Neil SI This is awful news and there's not a lot you can say. It's a massive shame for Kiyan's family and all those connected to him. I'm sure the club and fans will do him proud and ensure he's given a worthy send off.
E17 Hoop Tragic news.

Dylan Pressman Terrible, terrible news. So sad. Thought and prayers with the family.
Stan 4 England What can I add, except to send my condolences and prayers to his family? QPR and football generally is like being in a family, so it always hurts the same as it did with Dave Clement and Hillsborough.

Curdie R.I.P Kiyan.
Chairman of the Bored Sounds like he was a good kid and gave his all to make something for himself, all he wanted to do was play football for QPR. RIP.
Tracy Stent I am really beginning to despair of the levels of violence of crimes in London. Such a terrible waste of such a young life. Thoughts go to the lad's family at such a traumatic time for them.
Barry QPR Such a waste of a talented young life. It is not often that you hear of talented young players who put their all into school as well as sport. Some just know they are going to make it and let it go to their heads. This really does not seem to be the case. Rest in Peace. You Will Not be Forgotten.
Acton Monstar That's just wrong. It's a tragedy that some people think human life is worth so little. Thoughts with everyone effected by this.
URRRRRR's Such a terrible waste of a life, senseless, RIP Kiyan.

Derby R Thanks to all the fans from other clubs who have posted their respects on our site. R.I.P.
Surrey Bear My Son is plays in the same QPR team as Kiyan. We're stunned, there's no other way to put it. I hope his team mates can pay tribute to him in a fitting and proper way. They are all going to Germany for a pre-season tour; I think there's going to be a lot of emotion on that trip. Having said all that the only thing that's important now is his family, and catching the person who done this. Thanks for the memories Kiyan!! RIP.
Wexford R RIP
UAE Dave R.I.P Kiyan, What a waste of a good life.
Real Windsor Sounded like a great kid from what I've read. RIP KIYAN and all the other young kids that deserve SO much better.
Singing boy Kiyan Prince RIP. Let this be a tragic message to the misinformed youth as to the sheer stupidity of carrying knives and with regards to how terrible its direst consequences are. Nice to see tributes from everyone, including rival football teams, that just show how a precious, young talent being lost is such a terrible loss both to the game of football in general, and on a rather more transcendental, personal level. May his eternal dreams be filled with glory on the football field and peace, and may his family receive our gravest condolences and sympathies.
