Jack Pitcher - Striker

Debut : Cheshunt (A) - 18/08/07

Last Game : Bristol City (A) - 05/05/10

Jack is a pacy forward signed from fellow British Gas Business Premier Division side Clevedon Town in May 2007.

He started out as a youngster with local side Winterbourne United where he won the Gloucestershire County League before he caught the eye of Mangotsfield United during the clubs first season in the Hellenic League.

Whilst at Cossham Street he often came face to face with the Tigers and stood out if not only for his pace and goal threat but also for his two-tone hairstyles! He also caught the attention of Bristol Rovers and played for their second string on two occasions but didn't impress and returned to haunt Southern League defences, scoring twenty-nine goals in just under two years with the Bristol club.

He opted to follow Shaun Penny to Clevedon Town in the summer of 2004 and spent three successful years at the Hand Stadium finishing as top scorer on each occasion as the Seasiders first lost out in SL Div One West playoffs, then in his second season he won the Championship. In his third year Clevedon reached the first round proper of the FA Cup and Jack scored the only goal as they were beaten 1-4 by Chester City in front of 2261 supporters.

Jack headed up the M5 in the summer of 2007 and within a couple of months had written his name in Gloucester City history by becoming the first player to score five goals in a game since Chris Townsend when his five strikes beat Yate 5-1 in the FA Cup at Lodge Road. The feat earned him the accolade of FA Cup player of the round and a trip to Wembley as a VIP for the 2008 Cup Final!
