Newcastle Left-back Sent Out On Loan

Liam Gibson has completed his loan move to Grimsby where he’ll take the number three black and white striped shirt for the Mariners. The loan deal is just until January as the youngster gets some first-team football under his belt.

This is the tweet Newcastle United have sent out about Liam.

Here is the announcement from Grimsby Town FC.

Though he has reached the age of twenty-two and is only going to a League 2 side, the club still have a bit of hope for the Durham born youngster.

He has suffered through two illnesses that have delayed his development and Newcastle still thought enough of him to extend his contract.

He is also the older brother of Lewis Gibson who infamously left the club to join Everton a few years back.

Here is an interview with our former goalkeeper Steve Harper who helped coach Liam last season. He gives insight into what Liam can bring as a player and the plans the club have for him.

We wish Liam the best and hope he does well for Grimsby Town.
