Wycombe Wanderers Appointed 8th February 1999 - Assistant Manager


Lawrie Sanchez returned to seek out a former team mate at Wimbledon to fill the Assistant Manager's role at Wycombe. Like Sanchez, Gibson was a member of the 1988 FA Cup winning side and can look back on over 300 professional appearances in a career spanning 15 years.
The former Spurs apprentice includes in his early football days caps for England Schoolboys and England Youth. After struggling to break into the Spurs First Team, Gibson moved to Coventry City where 43 goals in just 98 Football League appearances for the Sky Blues attracted the attention of Manchester United who splashed out 650,000 for his services in January 1986. His time at Old Trafford never proved successful and in August 1987 he was signed by Wimbledon for 200,000. Gibson ended his playing career at Barnet where he became Youth Team Manager as part of Ray Clemence's team at Underhill. He was tipped for the Manager's job after Terry Bullivant left but Alan Mullery was the Board's choice and it wasn't long before Gibson after the two didn't see eye to eye. He has since spent his time setting up a bike customising business but is sure to be keen to get back into the game.
Gibson, best recognised by his diminutive form - standing at just 5'5" - will be working alongside the 6'4" frame of Terry Evans at Wycombe to make a real Little and Large duo.
