Gibson, Western Australia

The Gibson ground is one those pleasant footy surprises you receive for going just a little bit out of your way. The town is 22 km north of Esperance. The footy ground is well hidden but well worth finding. It’s nicely tree-lined, the surface is good and a glance through the clubroom windows reveals that one-time West Coast Murray Rance and current Eagle Quinten Lynch are former players.

The scoreboard doesn’t stand out on a non-match day – it looks a bit like a kiosk. No doubt it comes to life on Saturdays.
