Biography


Born in Dumfries, Willie started his senior career with hometown club Queen of the South. Willie joined top flight outfit Kilmarnock from the Palmerston Park side in early 2007. He made his debut, on 3 March 2007, coming on as a late substitute in a 2–0 win over St. Mirren.



He signed for Dunfermline Athletic on 23 June 2009. Making his debut for the club, in the Scottish League Cup, providing an assist for David Graham in a 5–0 win over Dumbarton

On 31 January 2011, Willie signed for non-league Crawley Town.

On 31 January 2012 STV reported on their website that Gibson had signed for Falkirk. This was not officially confirmed until 2 February 2012 when the club revealed Gibson had signed until the end of the season. He made his debut against Greenock Morton at Cappielow on 11 February 2012, coming on as a substitute. He scored his first goal against his former club Queens in the 36th minute on 25 February 2012. At the end of the season Gibson's contract was not renewed and he left the club.

On 14 June 2012, Gibson returned to Palmerston Park on a one-year contract. After the move, Allan Johnston commented that Gibson could help Queen of the South gain promotion straight back up to the First Division.

Gibson left Queens by mutual consent in April 2013 after only 12 starts in all competitions.

Willie signed for Dumbarton in June 2015, teaming up with his former manager at Stranraer, Stevie Aitken. He scored a free-kick winner on his home, league debut against Hibernian and netted again from a free kick the following week in another 2–1 victory, this time over St Mirren.

Timeline


  • Date of Birth

    Willie was born on this date in Dumfries.

  • Signed For Dumbarton

    Born in Dumfries, Willie started his senior career with hometown club Queen of the South. Willie joined top flight outfit Kilmarnock from the Palmerston Park side in early 2007. He made his debut, on 3 March 2007, coming on as a late substitute in a 2–0 win over St. Mirren.

  • DUMBARTON started the new season positively with a 3-2 Petrofac Training Cup win over neighbours Greenock Morton at a sunny Cappielow. Two goals for Grant Gallagher — the first a well-worked header and the second a sharply drilled shot — gave Sons a comfortable lead by the end of the first half. But after Sons went three up in the second half, Morton struck back with two goals, testing the visitors in the final minutes of the game.

  • Wullie Gibson fired home a stunning free kick to guide Dumbarton to their first win on the opening day of the league season in eight years as Sons defeated Hibernian 2-1. Gregor Buchanan put Stevie Aitken's men one ahead early on before Dominique Malonga equalised for Hibs just before a quarter of an hour. Then, in the second half, the stage was set for Gibson to step up and curl home a free kick to give Sons their first win over the Edinburgh side since 1984.

  • WHAT'S better than starting the season by beating a team who were in a cup final two years ago? Following it up by winning away to a side who WON a cup two years ago. That's what. Dumbarton's victory against Hibernian last week may have been viewed in some quarters as sheer luck. The kind that happens early doors in the season when David meets Goliath. It wasn't. And neither was this. Newly-relegated into the Ladbrokes SPFL Championship, St Mirren were many people's favourites. But by half time that was far from clearcut. What Willie Gibson did to win the Hibs game, he repeated after 26 minutes in Paisley. His free kick gave Sons the lead. One part of the script was followed when Scott Agnew scored against his former club, doing so with a fine 20-yard finish to equalise just after the hour mark. However, with seven minutes remaining Kevin Cawley was flattened in the area by young Buddies defender Barry Cuddihy. Garry Fleming may have been under pressure from the spot, but his calm head was all that was needed. Sons' game at home to Queen of the South next week was always going to be a big one. But now it's a top of the table clash. And to make it that type of game, Dumbarton have beaten two of the teams expected to be top four at the end of the season. They rode their luck at times across the Erskine Bridge. Just as against Hibs, nerves were shredded. However, just savour the results of the past week. Only time will tell when they happen again - later this season or otherwise.

  • Last Appearance - Livingston 1 - 1 Dumbarton
