Thomas Sandgaard’s arrival at Charlton Athletic has increased hopes that one day the Addicks can return to the Premier League, though a lot of hard work is going to be needed to be put in before they can think about that.
The Addicks can dream once more, though, and here we’re looking at what one of their former stars from their last stint in the top flight is up to now: Kevin Lisbie.
A striker that enjoyed a good spell for the Addicks during their Premier League days, he perhaps saw his finest moment come against Liverpool as he bagged a hat-trick against them.
Lisbie was a regular for the club in the early noughties but loan spells away eventually led to his departure in 2007, when he joined Colchester United.
It was at Leyton Orient where he perhaps enjoyed his most prolific spell at a high level, meanwhile, with him joining the O’s at the beginning of the last decade and spending four years there.
Since, he has moved into coaching with the League Two club, but does also still play on a semi-retired basis.
Indeed, he’s linked up with Cray Valley Paper Mills and remains on their books, with his two sons playing for the u23 side – a team that is very close, conveniently enough, to Charlton in south east London.
