Lisbie bags league player award

Leyton Orient striker Kevin Lisbie has been named the League One Player of the Month for November.

The 34-year-old striker beat off competition from Brentford goalkeeper Simon Moore and Doncaster Rovers defender Rob Jones to land the prize.

Lisbie notched five goals in as many games during the month, which witnessed a remarkable turnaround in the O’s fortunes.

He got the Londoners’ eight-game winning streak going with a brace in the 2-1 win over Shrewsbury Town, and continued his fine form throughout November.

Another two-goal haul followed against Portsmouth, while the former Charlton man was also on target against Preston North End.

Sponsorship manager for npower, Emma Collins, said: “Despite his advancing years, Kevin Lisbie is clearly still a vital part of the Leyton Orient squad and thoroughly deserves this award. Five goals in five games is great form and even without the goals, his experience and influence must be invaluable for the O’s.”
