Glasgow City are pleased to announce Lee Gibson has signed a contract extension with the club.
Gibson, in her second spell at Glasgow City having re-joined from Swedish side Mallbackens in December 2016, has made 217 appearances for the club since her debut against Inverness City in 2011.
A ten time SWPL champion, Gibson has also won six Scottish Cups and four Scottish Women’s Premier League cups during her time at the club and was a key part of the side that reached the Quarter Finals of the UEFA Women’s Champions League in 2019 by saving three penalties during the shoot-out against Brondby.
Gibson continued to be a key figure in the SWPL title run in last campaign with some big saves including late on at Ibrox which helped City secure the title.
With Erin Clachers also recently securing a contract until 2025, alongside our brand new Head of Goalkeeping Jamie Ewings, it shows a significant foundation at that area of the pitch.
Commenting on her new deal, Gibson said:
“I am really happy to be extending my contract here at City.
“I have been incredibly fortunate to represent the club creating so many incredible moments and lots of amazing memories here. Looking forward to working alongside the players and staff here to create even more!”
Head Coach Leanne Ross said:
“I am delighted Lee has extended her contract at the club. It is difficult to emphasis just how important Lee is to us and what she has contributed to the continued success we have enjoyed as a club, but her record more than speaks for itself.
“We have been so fortunate to have a goalkeeper of Lee’s calibre at City for so many years. She is someone who demands the highest of standards from herself and her teammates every single day and that is why she can continually deliver top level performances.
“Lee is the ultimate professional and a hugely influential leader on and off the pitch. Having been her teammate, and now her coach, I know more than most what Lee can contribute to this team, and it is for that reason I am delighted to have the opportunity to continue working together.”
