We are delighted to announce that midfielder Jordan Gibson has won the PFA League One Fans' Player of the Month award for October.
Gibson has claimed the prize for the first time in his career after starring for the Cumbrians in the final third.
The 25-year-old finished ahead of Portsmouth duo Colby Bishop and Conor O’Shaughnessy as well as Alfie May, Jordan Rhodes and Ephron Mason-Clark in the fans’ voting.
Gibson began the month with a crucial effort right at the death against Peterborough to earn Carlisle a share of the spoils at Brunton Park.
He then channelled that momentum with an exceptional performance, notching the first hat-trick of his career in a 3-1 victory over promotion-chasing Bolton Wanderers on the road. It was the first time in almost four years that a Carlisle player netted three goals in a game.
Gibson was not done yet in October as he helped Simpson’s men get back to winning ways, scoring the equaliser in their 2-1 triumph over Burton Albion.
Speaking after picking up the trophy, Jordan said: "It’s always nice to win awards like these and this one is extra special because the fans have voted and helped me win it.
