EVERGREEN former Colchester United striker Kevin Lisbie is aiming to roll back the years at Wembley this weekend.

And the 40-year-old has joked he will not be retiring until his ex-U’s team-mate Jamie Cureton does the same!

Lisbie is hoping to fire his side Cray Valley Paper Mills to glory against Chertsey Town in the FA Vase Final, on Sunday lunchtime.

The experienced striker, who has already helped the Southern Counties East Football League premier division side to the title this season, admits it could be the final game of what has been a stellar career.

Lisbie told the Gazette: “It could be my last game but I don’t know yet.

“My knee is giving me a few problems and you never know when it’s going to be your last game.

“When you’re about 27 you think about retiring at 30 but as you go on that changes and everyone knows how much I love the game.

“I retired two years ago so to come back and get to Wembley is great.

“The last two years have been a bonus for me and I’ve gone game by game.

“As you get older, you just want to keep playing as much as you can.

“I’ve joked with Curo that I’m not going to hang up my boots until he does!

“He’s absolutely flying at Bishop’s Stortford and it’s really nice to see him doing so well.

“The last time I played at Wembley, I was 36 or 37 at the time and it’s more exciting this time.

“It would be massive to win there and lift a trophy; it would be up there with anything I’ve done in my career.

“The lads have been looking forward to it ever since the semi-final.

“A lot of players haven’t played at Wembley before and some will never get the opportunity, so it’s a special day.

“Along with myself we have a couple of other senior boys and we’re hoping that experience will make a difference.

“It’s about us sticking to what we’re good at and not doing anything different because of the occasion.”

Lisbie joined Colchester in the summer of 2007 and finished as their top scorer in their second Championship season with 17 goals, in his first season at the club.

He left to join neighbours Ipswich Town the following summer but re-joined the U’s on loan in August 2009, scoring 13 goals in 43 appearances.

“Colchester is one of those clubs where as soon as I finish playing in my game, I look for their result,” he added.

“It was a shame that they were just unable to make the play-offs in the end but hopefully they’ll be able to kick on, next season.

“I had a great time at Colchester – it was like a family there and I still keep in touch with people like Kem Izzet, Curo [Jamie Cureton] and Kevin Watson.”

Lisbie is one of four former Colchester players set to take to the Wembley turf in Non-League Finals Day, this weekend.

Ex U's duo Macauley Bonne and Dean Brill are expected to play for Leyton Orient in the FA Trophy Final against AFC Fylde, who boast former U's midfielder Andy Bond in their ranks.
