PLAYER BIO

AT A GLANCE

Recruited from: Swan Districts/Adelaide Crows
Drafted via: 2016 marquee selection/2017 free agency period 
AFLW debut: Round 1, 2017, Adelaide v GWS
Position: Midfielder/forward

After flagging the desire to return home to WA after playing for the Adelaide Crows in 2017, Gibson signed with Fremantle as an unrestricted free agent. Gibson has already enjoyed success working with senior coach Michelle Cowan as part of the victorious WA side at the under 18s championship in 2014. The Swan Districts product played a vital role in the 2017 Crows premiership side, kicking the opening goal just 15 seconds into the AFLW Grand Final against Brisbane at Metricon Stadium. Gibson is an elite midfielder, with the ability to go forward and kick a couple of goals. She has shown a lot of potential at the highest level of the competition and she’s young, so she still has a lot of development ahead of her.
