Biography:
From Richill, Craigavon, Scott Gibb represented Co. Armagh at the 2004 Milk Cup shortly before signing for Falkirk after a successful trial. Only just sixteen at the time, he initially remained at home to finish his schooling, travelling over to Scotland as required. A commanding defender, he captained Northern Ireland Under-19s and played in the Elite Section of the 2007 Milk Cup. He was sent out on loan to Falkirk's near-neighbours and perennial Division Three strugglers, East Stirlingshire for the 2007/08 season and spent much of the following campaign on loan in Division Two with Stirling Albion.

Gibb's time with Stirling Albion saw him claim his first Under-21 cap as well as B international honours. His Under-21 debut was soured as he was harshly adjudged to have given away a penalty from which Ukraine took the lead, though thankfully Northern Ireland equalised through Chris Casement. In a 'B' International against Scotland he played the entire second-half at right-back during which time the Scots scored all their goals in a 3-0 win.

At the close of the 2008/09 season Gibb was released by Falkirk having not played a senior game for them. He quickly thereafter joined Drogheda United where he was a regular in defence as the team fought against relegation. The highlight of his time with the Drogs was perhaps a late left-foot volleyed equaliser in a 2-2 draw with Sligo Rovers. While at United Park Gibb claimed his second Under-21 cap, coming on for Martin Donnelly (himself a substitute), with ten minutes remaining of a 2-1 defeat by Portugal.

In January 2010 Gibb returned to Scotland, signing with Second Division Stenhousemuir. With Stenny he was often been deployed in midfield. He was released at the close of the 2010/11 season and joined Bo'ness in the Scottish Junior East Region Super League, though his appearances were limited by work commitments.
