Jabba's Comments

Signed from Scottish junior football in 1951, Archie Gibson was originally an inside forward, but it was a switch to right half that finally brought him into the team on a regular basis in the mid 1950s. Once in the squad, he became a permanent fixture, but left in 1960 as relegation resulted in a massive clear-out of players. Subsequently appeared for both Scunthorpe and Barnsley.
