Lisbie Admits Only League One For U's

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.'

So what do you think?

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!
