Kevin Anthony Lisbie (born 17 October 1978) is a footballer who plays for Leyton Orient as a striker. Born in London, he earned 10 international caps for Jamaica.

Career[edit]

Charlton Athletic[edit]

Born in Hackney, London, Lisbie made his professional debut for Charlton Athletic during the 1996–97 season.

He joined Queens Park Rangers on a month-long loan in December 2000.[1] He was placed on the transfer list by Charlton in February 2002,[2] but eventually signed a new two year-deal with Charlton in May.[3] Reading had been tracking Lisbie, but ended their interest in late 2003, although Reading manager Alan Pardew said he would wait until Lisbie's contract with Charlton would come to an end.[4] Possibly his best moment in a Charlton shirt was a hat-trick against Liverpool in a 3–2 win over the Merseyside club in September 2003.[5] Lisbie signed a new three-year deal with Charlton in June 2004.[6] He was a regular for Charlton during the 2004–05 season, until he started suffering from a series of nosebleeds, which revealed a benign tumour in the back of his nose, which was treated over the summer of 2005.[7]

Lisbie made a month-long loan move to Norwich City in September 2005 and was recalled by Charlton in October.[8][9] Later that season, in February 2006, he spent a month on loan at Derby County as the club tried to resolve an injury crisis.[10] Lisbie was ruled out for three months with a shoulder injury in October 2006,[11] and returned for Charlton's game against Bolton Wanderers in January 2007.[12]

Lisbie was released by Charlton in July of that year[13] after struggling to break into the first team. Several loan spells away from the club made it clear that his future lay elsewhere.

Colchester United[edit]

In August 2007, following a successful trial period, Lisbie joined Colchester United. Over the season Lisbie scored 17 goals and finished the club's top scorer, but could not prevent Colchester's relegation from the Championship. Colchester, trying to fend off interest in Lisbie from their East Anglian rivals Ipswich Town, offered him a new contract. However, Ipswich triggered a release clause in Lisbie's contract and the transfer was agreed between the two clubs.[14]

Ipswich Town[edit]

Lisbie signed a three-year deal with Ipswich Town for fee of £600,000 in July 2008. Despite a promising start to his Ipswich career, he struggled to hold down a regular first-team spot.

He was released from his contract at Ipswich Town in May 2011.

Loan to Colchester United[edit]

In August 2009, Lisbie rejoined Colchester United, now playing in League One, on a season-long loan deal. He scored a brace in his second debut for the club in a 7–1 victory against Colchester's recently relegated rivals Norwich City. Lisbie, who had become a fan favourite with Colchester fans in his previous spell there, finished as the club's top scorer again with 13 goals as the club finished 8th in League One. Colchester were keen to keep him at the club permanently but Lisbie revealed that he would not return to the club, although he still expected that he would not play for Ipswich again.

Loan to Millwall[edit]

Lisbie was quickly signed on another season-long loan deal, this time by Kenny Jackett's Millwall side after they secured a return to the Championship in 2010. Lisbie's season was blighted by injury and finished that particular season with 4 goals in 19 appearances.

Leyton Orient[edit]

Kevin Lisbie signed on a free transfer for League One side Leyton Orient on a four-month contract, on 9 September 2011.

During the 2013 January transfer window, Orient accepted an offer from Sheffield United for Lisbie, but the striker turned down talks with the Blades. Orient immediately offered Lisbie a new 18 month contract which he signed on 2 February 2013.

On 4 March 2014, Lisbie signed a new one-year contract extension with the O's.[15]

International career[edit]

Lisbie has represented the Jamaican national team.
