Kelvinhaugh was Gibson’s first team before moving on to Strathclyde. He made quite a name for himself in Scottish Junior Football and looked set to sign for either Rangers or Celtic, but George Swift, the former Leeds City trainer and then Manager of Non-League Southampton beat them to his signature in May 1911. He was only with the Saints for ten months before he and team-mate Henry Hamilton were suspended sine die for a breach of club discipline. After a short spell with Celtic, Leeds City signed him in September 1912. He went straight into the City first team for the opening game of the season but after a 4-0 defeat he was dropped. Stan Cubberley took his place and became the first choice Inside Left and Gibson had to be content and wait for injuries to give him any further chances. In October he got two consecutive games, while Cubberley was filling in at Right Half and in December he again got two consecutive games when Cubberley was injured, but that was to be his last games for City and he dropped out of the professional game at the end of the season.
