You can’t doubt the depth of experience that Boro’ had bagged when veteran striker Kevin Lisbie was revealed as our latest signing in March 2015. Sure, it was only on a one-month loan from Leyton Orient. But who’s counting, eh? Lisbie was well into his 30s when he was brought in by Graham Westley. But it was valuable experience for a side in the chase for a League Two playoff place.
Kevin Lisbie: Before Boro’
The former Jamaican international first made his name at Charlton Athletic. It was at The Valley that Lisbie made his breakthrough; a hattrick against Liverpool standing out as one of his finest moments for the Addicks, if not his career as a whole? After many loan spells away from Charlton, he secured a permanent switch in 2007. His next port of call was Colchester United; a club with whom he had a fruitful time.
His form for the Us caught the attention of Ipswich, who signed him in 2008. But he’d be back with the Us, and then Millwall too, on loan.
