Lisbie's Wembley farewell

Super Kevin Lisbie, now 40 years old, was substituted at Wembley today as Cray Valley Paper Mills were beaten 3-1 in extra time by Chertsey Town. Defeat denied Cray Valley - a double of their own, after the Eltham-based club had already clinched the Southern Counties East League Premier Division title.

Lisbie made 116 appearances and scored 14 goals for the Addicks. My favourite was one he scored as a substitute at Ipswich to give us a 1-0 victory, but he also scored at Chelsea.

Mind you, he also could miss sitters. I remember bring a friend from Canada to one where he somehow missed a tap in, leading some to call him 'Kevin Missbie.' On this occasion, the bloke beside us complained, 'How much do I pay that guy?'

He reviews his career here, although he seems more attached to Leyton Orient than Charlton: Ends illustrious career
