Caley Gibb has signed her first semi-professional contract with Spartans F.C Women.
The 18-year-old joined Spartans back in June 2019 from Hibernian Girls Academy and has a total of 36 SWPL 1 appearances already under her belt. An attacking winger, with an eye for a goal, and an ability to glide past opponents, Gibb played a consistent role in Debbi McCulloch’s squad throughout the 2020-21 season.
On signing a two-year deal Gibb said: “I’m absolutely thrilled to have signed a semi-pro contract with Spartans. I’m really grateful to be given this opportunity and to be part of such a wonderful club. This is a big step forward for the club and one that we are all very excited about. I have more to improve on and I feel Spartans is the best place for myself to achieve that”.
Gibb’s thoughts are firmly on next season already as we look to build on a successful 2020-21 league campaign. She said: “I think this season is going to be a lot more demanding and competitive but I’m really looking forward to getting started and hopefully we can get ourselves a well earned place at the top of the table.”
Commenting on securing Gibb’s services for the next two years, McCulloch said: “Caley is a player who has definitely matured over the last 18 months. Her work rate on the pitch is never in doubt and she is always eager to learn and push herself. Our focus at Spartans has always been to challenge players, especially the younger players, and Caley along with others, continue to meet the demands placed on them.”
