21-Year old Irish international Darron Gibson has agreed a 3 year extension and aim to be involved more with the first squad next term.
Last season I enjoyed every opportunity and when I got my chance I wanted to prove what I could do. I hope to continue that this season.
Gibson made 14 appearances last season, scoring three times, one of them a hurler in the last game of the 2008-2009 season, against Hull. He also participated to the complete and winning Carling Cup final. Chances to see Gibson receive even more time on the pitch will probably increase every season as he is highly talented and has a very good position game.
