Gidman, a seam-bowling all-rounder, made his way through the ranks at Gloucestershire but opted to move to Durham in 2007. However, he struggled for opportunities during four seasons in the north-east, with his appearances limited largely to one-day cricket. The younger brother of Gloucestershire captain Alex, Will signed a two-year contract to return to Bristol in 2010, citing a need to "develop" his game.
