access_time 8 years ago
ORIENT striker Kevin Lisbie stole the spotlight at the Supporters Club Star Man dinner as he was named Leyton Orient Player Of The Year and Players’ Player Of The Year for the 2012-13 season.
Lisbie’s impact on the side was dramatic as he finished with 16 goals from 34 appearances to help fire the O’s to their second top seven finish in three years. 
Moses Odubajo picked up the Young Player Of The Year Award to cap a remarkable year for the 19-year-old who made a staggering 54 appearances throughout the season.
There was little surprise that Dean Cox was winner of the Goal Of The Year for his strike against Walsall back in October where he unleashed an unstoppable drive from inside his own half in a 2-1 away win for Russell Slade’s side.
De’Reece Vanderhyde celebrated signing his first pro-contract by picking up the Youth Team Player Of The Year too.
For the off the field awards, Leon McSweeney was named the Orient Community Player Of The Year and commended for his work with local schools and also his efforts to help raise the awareness of Prostate Cancer UK.
Meanwhile David Mooney picked up a special award for Outstanding Contribution In The Community and was praised for his continued excellent work with St Joseph’s Hospice.
In terms of the Supporters Club prizes defender Mathieu Baudry was crowned as Star Man after impressing in his first season with the club.
Lisbie again picked up two awards as he was announced Away Player Of The Season and the winner of the Merit Award, whilst Odubajo was named as Captain’s Player Of The Year which is selected by Nathan Clarke.
Cox also won the Supporters Club Goal Of The Season for his Walsall strike, whilst goalkeeper Jamie Jones was given the Performance Award in recognition of his return to top form following a lengthy spell on the sidelines with a shoulder injury.
The event was another sell-out at the Prince Regent Hotel and we’ll have all the photos to follow on
