Baffins swoop to sign experienced former Football League forward.

The 36-year-old joins Baffins Milton Rovers from Shaftesbury, where the forward had an instrumental role in the club’s play-off winning campaign.


The Jersey-born attacker has a wealth of experience in the Football League, with notable spells at AFC Bournemouth and Portsmouth. Pitman struck 182 goals in the EFL, including a 25-goal haul during his debut campaign for Pompey, finishing second in the League One goalscoring charts.


After departing Fratton Park, Brett enjoyed spells with Swindon Town and Eastleigh (loan) before making a surprise move to AFC Portchester from Bristol Rovers in 2022. The forward scored an impressive 56 league for Shaftesbury goals last term, including the winner in the play-off final triumph over AFC Stoneham, before opting to leave the Dorset-based outfit at the end of the campaign.


Pitman heads back to Portsea Island to link-up with Danny Thompson’s side ahead of the 2024/25 campaign, and his new manager said: “The opportunity to sign a player of Brett’s quality and experience shows the intent and aspirations we have at Baffins this season.


‘Brett’s goalscoring record will be a massive help to our squad - at whatever level he’s played at, he’s scored plenty of goals - and we’re hoping he will continue this with us next season.”


You can watch Brett Pitman’s first match at PMC Stadium on Saturday 13 July as Rovers welcome Hayes & Yeading in a pre-season friendly, 3pm kick-off. The forward’s first league game for the club is on Tuesday 30 July (7:45pm) as newly-promoted Millbrook are the visitors for the curtain-raising clash in PO3.


Everyone at Baffins Milton Rovers would like to welcome Brett to the club and wish him the best for his spell at PMC Stadium.
