His first goal came away at the Sir Tom Finney Stadium against Bamber Bridge, his second in the penultimate home game of the season against Mickleover, helping the side to all three points. Two loan spells away from the club during the 2021/22 season also yielded game time for the young forward (at Frickley Athletic and Belper Town) further aiding Jack's development, but with the addition of Clayton Donaldson & Jack Dyche in recent weeks bolstering the front line, opportunities with the Holy Blues looked to be limited.
A grateful Gibson took to Twitter to thank the people of Gainsborough for their support during his year at Trinity, going on record to say, "I just want to thank the Chairman Richard Kane, Matt Boles the Secretary and all of the fans of Gainsborough Trinity for everything you’ve done for me and all the support you have given me over the last year."
He reiterated the point, "As a young player I need to play as many games as I can. But whatever happens in the future, I will always remember that it was the Holy Blues who gave me my first chance, my first contract and all of your support - thank you to all of you."
Jack leaves the club with everybody’s thanks and best wishes for the future. Both him, and his family will be a miss around the ground, as a family they knew and understood the non league football community spirit. One thing is certain though, our paths will no doubt cross again in the future - and we're all sure that Gibbo knows, once a blue, always a blue.
