Profile

A late bloomer, Will Gidman spent four years at Durham and only played for the first XI once, working in Sports Direct to top up his income. But Gloucestershire gave him a new opportunity and he grasped the nettle immediately to become one of the leading allrounders in the country. His consistent form earned him a move to Nottinghamshire for the 2015 season.
