Previous Clubs - None (Academy Graduate)

After progressing through the academy system here at Port Vale, Gibbons' impressive performances for the youth team were rewarded with a professional deal in 2016.

In September of that year, the defender joined Northern Premier League side Leek Town on a one-month loan deal and that allowed him to experience senior football for the first time.

Gibbons then made his first team debut for Vale on the 4th of December 2016 as a substitute during a 4-0 FA Cup victory over Hartlepool United at Vale Park.

Capable of playing at both left-back and right-back, he was given a fresh one-year contract in May 2017 to keep him at Vale Park until the summer of 2018.
