Lary kids’ terror at gun raid

Laryea Kingston has told how his four children were held up by gun-wielding masked robbers as he played for his new club in Holland.
The former Hearts star was delighted to get a rare runout for new side Vitesse Arnhem in their 1-1 draw with NAC Breda on Saturday night.

But his joy turned to horror when he heard of his kids' plight back home in Ghana's capital.

While Kingston was making his just his third appearance for Vitesse after joining them in the summer from the Jambos, five armed raiders broke into his family home in Accra after beating up a security guard.

The midfielder, 30, said: "They took my little boy, who is two years old, at gunpoint and asked him to show them where the money was. "My nanny was crying and telling them that there's no money in the house. She said that me and my wife were not in town so there was nothing in the house. "They took my wife's laptop and jewellery box and my kids' PlayStation as well as all the mobile phones in the house. "They also went away with my three car keys, but they didn't touch my cars, so I don't know what they are going to do with the car keys." Accra police are investigating, while the guard was taken to hospital with his injuries.

Meanwhile, Kingston has lamented his lack of first-team action at Vitesse. He said: "Everything is fine apart from the fact that I am not getting more playing time. "I am not playing a lot of games, but I am not worried. You know football is a lot of politics, and I have to relax. "The most important thing is to keep training and stay professional."
