Career summary at Wycombe
93 appearances - 17 goals
Switched to non-League football in the summer of 2007 when he moved to Conference side Crawley Town. Was a regular in the Crawley side - scoring 12 goals in 36 appearances. His 10 Conference goals in 25 appearances in the first half of the 2008/9 season would have been a major factor in highlighting his potential to the prying eyes of Football League scouts and prompting Peter Taylor to battle for his signature in the January 2009 transfer window.
The deal was eventually struck for a fee described by the Crawley Observer as a, "five-figure sum plus extra clauses which will provide Town with additional income from the deal." Meanwhile, Taylor commented on the day of the signing, "I'm excited to have him here, he's a very, very quick player and has had a nice grounding at Villa and Forest. Hopefully this is really going to work out for us."
Pittman was also exited about his move to Adams Park saying, "My plan was always to prove myself again when I dropped out of the league and I feel I did that at Crawley. It's great to come to a club so high up the league and I see no reason why we can't be champions come May." He added, "My aim is to be consistent and to earn my place in the team and keep my shirt. I want to enjoy myself, it's nice to come here and know a couple of faces too. I played with Gary Holt at Forest and Magno Silva Vieira at Crawley."
His time at Wycombe proved to be a rather hit and miss affair. He scored his first goal in a 1-0 victory at Dagenham & Redbridge in February 2009 and hit two more before the end of that campaign as Wanderers scraped automatic promotion back to League One. His time in League One saw him score a further seven goals in 41 appearances, although close to half of those were from the bench. Perhaps his most memorable goals came in a 2-1 victory over Bristol Rovers at Adams Park in August 2009 and an equaliser in the 1-1 draw with Leeds United at Elland Road in January 2010. With Wanderers back in League Two for the 2010/11 season, Pittman started the season in style with a goal in a 2-0 home victory over Morecambe, however, disaster struck in a pre-match warm up on 11th September 2011 when he rupurted a tendon. He returned to First Team action in January 2011 and scored three more League goals before the close of a campaign that saw Wanderers promoted back to League One. A few days later it was announced that he was being released by Manager Gary Waddock, joining Oxford United on a two year deal on 19th May 2011.
After two years with Oxford united, Pittman rejoined Wanderers, now managed by former teammate at Wycombe, Gareth Ainsworth. However failed to make a major impact and departed at the end of the 2013/14 season and subsequently joined Conference side Grimsby Town for the start of the following season.
