Kevin Lisbie looks to have played his last game for Leyton Orient.

The 36-year-old striker posted a message on his Instagram page, saying: “Going to miss all the boys at Orient we had some good times together, but time to start a new chapter.”

Jamaican international Lisbie has been restricted to just eight appearances this season, due to a lengthy absence with a shoulder injury, and netted in wins at Oldham and Yeovil.

But he formed a productive partnership with David Mooney last season, as the pair fired O’s to a promotion play-off final appearance at Wembley.

Russell Slade’s side lost to Rotherham on penalties, after letting a 2-0 lead slip, and the club have struggled to find consistency under new Italian owners this term.

After Slade moved to Cardiff, Kevin Nugent had a brief spell as interim manager, before Mauro Milanese took over the reins.

Fabio Liverani was then installed as Orient’s fourth boss of the season and handed Lisbie a start against Notts County last month, when he played the full 90 minutes in a 1-0 defeat.

Lisbie, who played for Charlton, Colchester and Ipswich earlier in his career, has not played since February 10, but has made 125 league and cup appearances for Orient, netting 48 times.

Having a brand new kitchen is something that lots of people want but can only dream of. Sadly keeping up to date and making our living spaces as nice as they can be is a costly and incredibly stressful business. Even a fresh coat of paint makes all the difference but isn’t easy or quick.

Who wouldn’t love the chance to go on a shopping spree. Imagine being able to walk into a shop and choose whatever your heart desires without having to worry about how much it costs.
