Lisbie Admits Only League One For U's

Kevin Lisbie has revealed that Colchester United were the only League One club he was prepared to play for.

The 30-year-old inked a season-long loan deal in North Essex, click here, on Monday. Lisbie makes the short trip back down the A12 from close rivals Ipswich Town after a disappointing 12 months.

And Lisbie told The Daily Gazette: 'Playing in League One was something I had to think about.

'I wouldn`t have done it if it hadn`t been Colchester.'

Lisbie, who netted an impressive 17 goals for the U's, two season ago, while still at Layer Road, is shocked at how much has changed.

'I can`t believe it - it`s a bit different to Layer Road!' he added:

'It feels like a different club and the facilities are amazing.'

Great to see a player showing some kind of loyalty. Hope he can grab a few goals!

Yeah - he will. Surely 20 + ... Up the U's!

I'd say 20 plus is a must if he gets a run in the side!
