Biography: Another former Southampton player who despite two spells at the Dell, actually signed for Pompey from Middlesbrough. Jim Smith snapped him up on a free transfer and played him in almost every game for two years but when Terry Fenwick took over as boss, Gittens's chances became limited and he agreed to join Torquay United in 1996. Five years later he was back in the area, coaching with Fareham and was famously 'sent off' for calling the linesman a "chicken nugget". He has since coached the Solent University side Team Solent and managed Wessex League Division 1 team, Blackfield& Langley. He now does some coaching for the Hampshire FA.
