Percy Gibb commenced his senior career in the VFA with Richmond where he proved himself a fast, elusive wingman of real quality. He transferred to Collingwood in 1905, and was a stalwart of the Magpie line-up for the next ten seasons. He was on the wing in both the 1910 Challenge Final defeat of Carlton, and the loss to Essendon a year later. Gibb played a total of 156 VFL games and kicked nine goals. He also represented the VFL. Once his playing days were over he served on the Collingwood committee.
