Overview:Gibbo - The Davie Gibson Story - Davie Gibson, universally known as 'Gibbo', was a shy wee lad from Winchburgh, a mining village in West Lothian. A fascinating story unfolds as he overcomes an inferiority complex to flourish as one of the most skilful players in Leicester City's history. The book coincides with the fiftieth anniversary of Davie's appearance in the 1963 FA Cup final against Manchester United and the emergence of City's 'Ice Kings' under manager Matt Gillies during the Big Freeze. Davie enjoyed an illustrious career with the Foxes and scored in both legs of the League Cup final in 1964 as Leicester secured their first ever major trophy. His creative force in midfield earned Davie seven caps for Scotland during a selection period of fierce competition. He describes his international career in detail, from his debut against Austria, an extraordinary match that was abandoned by the referee. Davie's National Service and time at Hibernian, Aston Villa and Exeter are also fully charted, together with life after football. Davie was a lively character and he regales us with humorous tales of some of the great names in football. His rich anecdotes provide a captivating glimpse of life as a professional during the 1960s and 1970s.
