Playing career[edit]

Crewe Alexandra & Wrexham[edit]

Gibson was a trainee for Crewe Alexandra at the age of 15.[citation needed] After that he joined Wrexham in 1998 and made 77 league appearances. He is most remembered for his major goal against Middlesbrough in the FA Cup; knocking them out. On 17 April 2002, Gibson was released with seven other players due to financial cut-backs.[1]

Stafford Rangers[edit]

He later joined Stafford Rangers and went on to make over 100 appearances and has won the Staffs Senior Cup medal twice. He also scored a penalty for Stafford in the play-off semi-final against Harrogate Town in a game which led to their promotion to the conference at the expense of his current club Droylseden in the final.[2]

Droylsden and non-league[edit]

He left Stafford in the summer of 2007 and signed for newly promoted Droylsden who won the Conference North in the 2006-07 season.[3] Gibson then had a short spell at Nantwich Town where he failed to impress and was later signed by Leigh RMI. After spending a few months at Leigh RMI he was released. Later Robin "Gibbo" Gibson signed for Nantwich Town.
