Maisy Gibson extends contract with the Thunder

08 November 2018

Thunder fans will be seeing Gibson back in action this summer in WBBL|04

Sydney Thunder has re-signed Maisy Gibson for a further year to see her remain in green ahead of the 2018/19 Rebel Women’s Big Bash League season.

Leg spinner Gibson has been at the Thunder since the side took home the inaugural WBBL trophy in WBBL|01 and played every match for the side last season, including the disappointing semi-final loss to Perth.


“I don’t think we’re really dwelling on what happened last season and just looking forward to building on what has started for us now and continuing that,” said Maisy Gibson

“We are all looking forward to giving it another crack (this season) and trying to win the trophy again and bring it back from WBBL|01.

“I’m really looking forward to going from two broadcast games to seven this year, it’s really getting the word out there that the women’s game is growing massively along with all the other women’s sports in Australia as well.

Sydney Thunder General Manager Lee Germon is looking forward to seeing what the 22-year old can deliver this summer.

"Maisy was a consistent performer for us last season," said Lee Germon

"Leg spin is an art that takes time to develop and Maisy is making good progress. She contributes to the team on and off the field and is committed to the Thunder Nation.”

Gibson has become known in recent seasons for her signature wicket celebration, the Gibby Shimmy, but says she may have something new on the cards this summer.

Maybe something a little bit different but you’ll have to wait and see,” said Gibson

“I need to work on my moves first, I’ve faceplanted already this season so we’ll see what happens.”
