A French born attacker who played for Martinique at international level, Arquin arrived at Saints in January 2015 from Ross County as recently appointed manager Gary Teale attempted to steer the club away from the relegation battle following a disastrous opening period to the season under Tommy Craig.

Potentially the attacker looked like a good accusation; a mobile and strong running forward who was good in the air, however a question mark hung over his commitment and attitude. After only 37 minutes of his debut ironically in Dingwall against his former club, Arquin was harshly sent off as Saints still won the match 2-1.

The club successfully appealed the red card, but he was sent off in one of the matches he should have missed a week later against Dundee Utd, and this seemed to sum up both the season for the club and the 12 matches played by the forward where he failed to find the net and was released at the end of the campaign.

Arquin continued his nomadic career after leaving Saints, playing in Turkey, Sweden, England, Kazakhstan and China.
