William Robert Simon "Giddo" Gidman (born 14 February 1985) is a professional cricketer currently playing for Gloucestershire County Cricket Club. He is a left-handed batsman and bowls right-arm medium. He had previously played county cricket for Durham.
Will was previously on the books with Gloucestershire before signing for Durham in 2006. He made his first-class debut against Sri Lanka A in 2007, but did not play another first class match again until 2010, which prompted a move away from the north-east.
After the 2010 season he signed for Gloucestershire, who was captained by his elder brother Alex. In his first season with the county he achieved a County Championship double of 50 wickets and 1000 runs, all in his debut season.

In the game against Leicestershire at Bristol, he took career best bowling figures of 6-15 on Day 1, and then scored 143 with the bat on Day 2. Gloucester went on to win the game be an innings and 138 runs.
