Former Ipswich Town forward Brett Pitman is still banging in the goals - he scored his 50th of the season on Saturday!

The 35-year-old now plies his trade in the Wessex Premier League with Shaftesbury, having joined them from fellow ninth-tier side AFC Portchester last summer. 

He missed out on promotion with Portchy by a single point on a memorable final day of the 2022/23 season, as the long-time leaders eventually finished fourth on 94 points.

Pitman bagged an impressive 50 goals in all competitions for the Hampshire side, before signing for Shaftesbury ahead of the 2023/24 campaign. 



Ironically, the forward netted his 50th goal in all competitions for the Dorset club in the 1-0 home win over his former side Porchester to move above them in the table. 

They sit fourth in the league with them seven points away from leaders Moneyfields, with eight games remaining. 

Earlier this season, Pitman made a statement when he scored seven goals in an 8-2 win over Christchurch to end his 2023.

Pitman scored 15 goals in 70 games for the Blues during his two season at Portman Road and was the club's top scorer with 11 in the 2015/16 campaign.

Alongside playing he is a current youth coach at his former side AFC Bournemouth.
