BLUESEUM - History of the Carlton Football Club (Cached)



Michael Gibbons’ story has been well-documented, with the versatile midfield-forward spending the last five years as a consistent, standout performer for Williamstown in the VFL. In that time, the 23-year-old became a dual J.J Liston Medal winner and Norm Goss Medallist in the Seagulls’ 2015 premiership win. A natural ball-winner with great athletic ability and a supreme hunger for the contest, Gibbons has also been named in the VFL Team of the Year in each of the last three seasons. It would have been easy for Gibbons to give up on his dream at playing at the highest level but no one could begrudge of this opportunity that has been presented to him by the Carlton FC, a spot so truly deserved for a man that has just continued to do everything to live his AFL dream.

Gibbons is originally from Coolamon in NSW, he went through the Murray Bushrangers program, captaining the TAC Cup club in 2013 and twice finishing second in the best and fairest. He also represented NSW/ACT at the national Under 18 carnival..
