NCFC logo
Norwich Career: 2005 (6 appearances, 1 goal) (on loan from Charlton Athletic)
Current Club: Cray Valley Paper Mills (Southern Counties East Football League)
Date of Birth: 17/10/1978 (Hackney) 
Nationality: Jamaican


Charlton Athletic's 26 year old Jamaican international striker Kevin Lisbie joined Norwich on loan on 9th September 2005 as City had an injury problem up front with injuries to Leon McKenzie and Peter Thorne. Lisbie had made 141 appearances for the Addicks and had scored 16 goals including a hat-trick against Liverpool in September 2003. A product of their youth system, Lisbie was a regular in their Premiership side in 2004/5 until a series of nose bleeds revealed a benign tumour in the back of his nose for which he received treatement during the summer.

Kevin scored his first goal for Norwich in their 2-1 defeat at Watford on 13th September 2005. He made a total of six appearances for the Canaries before returning to the Valley. On January 7th 2006, The Mirror speculated that Kevin would return to Carrow Road along with £750,000 in exchange for Robert Green.

On 21st February 2006, Kevin joined Derby County on a one month's loan. He has since returned to the Valley but was released during June 2007. He has since been on trial at Leeds United and has been linked with Reading. He was given a trial by Colchester in late July 2007 and played in their 21st July 2007 friendly against Heybridge Swifts. He completed a transfer to Colchester on 3rd August 2007 and will compete for a place up front alongside Teddy Sherringham, Jamie Guy and Clive Platt - all bar Guy being new signings following the departures of Jamie Cureton and Chris Iwelumo to Norwich and Charlton respectively.

Unfortunately for Kevin, his 17 goals for Colchester, including one against Norwich in the 5-1 Canaries' victory on 22nd March, did not prevent them from being relegated back to League One. He was soon linked with a move to Ipswich Town and this materialised on 19th July 2008 for an undisclosed fee.

In 45 appearances for Ipswich last season, he scored just 7 goals and speculation reigned all summer that new Ipswich manager Roy Keane would replace him with a proven goalscorer. In the end, he rejoined Colchester on loan on 3rd August 2009. It was thought that he would return to Ipswich in January 2010 as Crystal Palace had been linked with him but instead he was allowed to stay at Colchester for the remainder of the 2009/10 season. He finished the season with 13 goals for Colchester

On 28th July 2010, Lisbie was loaned to Millwall for the 2010/11 season, becoming the seventh new signing since Millwall won the play-off final against Swindon at Wembley Stadium in May

Lisbie was released by Ipswich at the end of the 2010/11 season.

On 9th September 2011, Lisbie signed for Leyton Orient on a four month contract.

He joined Stevenage on a month's loan on 17th March 2015, having scored 48 goals for Orient including 18 in 2013/14 but had found opportunities limited in 2014/15, playing just eight games at the time of his loan. He made three appearances for Stevenage.

Released at the end of the 2014/15 season, Lisbie signed a one year contract with Conference champions Barnet on 29th May 2015. He had made 125 appearances for Orient, scoring 48 goals.

Lisbie left Barnet on 17th January 2016 after failing to start a game for them. He then trained with Leyton Orient and was linked with Farnborough. He also trialled with Grays Athletic before moving to non-league side Cray Valley Paper Mills of the Southern Counties East Football League in October 2017.

Kevin has 10 caps for Jamaica and has scored twice for them.
