757 Paul Gibson

Biography

Goalkeeper Gibson joined Warren Joyce’s Tigers on loan in November 1998, initially to cover for first choice Steve Wilson. But he was drafted into the first XI within days of his arrival, then drafted out again three weeks later when he broke a finger.

Paul Gibson hailed from Sheffield but began his career at Manchester United. He was part of the Red Devils’ FA Youth Cup Final winning team in 1995 but never managed to reach the first team (other than as a bench sitting ‘nearly man’). Warren Joyce called in a favour through his family connections with United to get him to Boothferry Park on loan.

Gibson departed Manchester United towards the end of 1998/99 season and spent two and a bit years at Notts County, where he was reserve goalie. In 2001 he dropped into the non-leagues with Northwich Victoria, but after fouryears and four clubs his playing days were over. In 2003 he began a second career as a Physical Education teacher at a variety of schools in England and Qatar.
