Scotsman Dr Tom Gibson was an inside forward who had joined Leicester City in 1927 from Scottish junior football while studying medicine at Glasgow University. He made his Leicester debut in March 1928 at West Ham United in a game they lost 4-0 and played once more a month later in a 1-1 draw at Liverpool as Leicester finished in their highest ever position, third in Division 1. The following season they went one better, finishing runners up, and Gibson too went one better, playing another 2 first team matches, in scoring his only goal in a 6-3 defeat at Liverpool on September 8th, followed 2 days later by his final appearance in a 1-0 defeat at Birmingham City. He never played in a winning Leicester team. He was released at the end of the season and subsequently played in East Midlands non league football for Burton and Ashby.
