Gidman signs for Gloucestershire

Gidman, who joined Durham in 2006, broke into the one day side in 2009 and became a regular fixture in the Clydesdale Bank 40 team this season before he sustained an ankle injury.

On his departure from Durham Will Gidman said, “I have absolutely loved my time at Durham but at 25 I need to focus on where I’m going to get the best cricketing opportunities to develop my game.  I’m keen to push on to try to ensure regular first class appearances and hopefully I’ll be able to significantly contribute to the side at Gloucester.  I’m really excited about making the move but I’ll always have fond memories of my time up in the North East. 

Durham CCC Head Coach, Geoff Cook, commented, “Will has been an enthusiastic and committed member of our team but due to the depth of the squad there hasn’t been the opportunity for him to break into our four day side and I hope his move to Gloucester gives him the chance to demonstrate his undoubted skill. ”
