Nicholas Crittenden (born 11 November 1978) is a right-sided English midfielder who played for Chelsea until 2000, after joining the club as a junior. All three of his first team appearances were during the 1997-98 season.

Chelsea career

Born in Bracknell, Crittenden graduated from the Chelsea youth ranks in late 1997, making his debut in a League Cup victory against Southampton. It would prove to be his only start for the club. Following two late substitute appearances in the league prior to Christmas, Crittenden didn't feature for the remainder of the season, and was loaned to Plymouth Argyle in October 1998 in order to gain first team experience. He made just two appearances for the Pilgrims however, and returned to Chelsea after three weeks.[1] With many international midfielders ahead of him Crittenden had little chance of breaking into the first team, but it would be a year and a half before he left Chelsea.

After Chelsea

Crittenden eventually left Chelsea in the summer of 2000, signing for the ambitious non-league side Yeovil Town on professional terms. He was with Yeovil for 3 years, winning the Football Conference and the FA Trophy during his time with the Glovers.

After four seasons and 163 appearances he joined Aldershot Town in 2004. He played in the 2004-05 Conference play-off Final, which the Hampshire side lost on penalties. He then moved on to Weymouth for two seasons before signing for nearby Dorchester Town in 2008, where he remained as of 2013.
