Alistair Stuart Gibb (born 17 February 1976) is a former footballer, who is currently Physiotherapist at former club Stockport County who he played for between 2000-2004. He joined Bath after his release from Hartlepool United in 2008. The former Norwich City player was signed by Hartlepool on transfer deadline day in August 2006.

Gibb was a versatile right sided player[citation needed], who usually played on the right wing. He began his career at Norwich City before moving to Northampton Town. He then played over 150 games for Stockport County before joining Bristol Rovers in 2004. He joined Notts County on loan in January 2008.

After signing for Bath City in the summer of 2008, Gibb broke his ankle during pre-season training and was unable to play for seven months. He was loaned to Yate Town in February 2009 in order to regain match fitness.[2]
