George Vernon Gunn, who died in hospital at Shrewsbury on October 15, aged 52, as the result of injuries received in a motor-cycle accident, played for Nottinghamshire from 1928 to 1939, scoring in that time just over 10,000 runs and taking close upon 300 wickets. In 1931 he scored 100 not out -- his first century -- against Warwickshire at Edgbaston and in the same innings his father, George Gunn, then 53, hit 183. This, it is believed, is the only instance of a father and son each reaching three figures in the same first-class match. G. V. Gunn's best season as an all-rounder was that of 1934 when he obtained 922 runs and, with slow leg-breaks, dismissed 77 batsmen. In that summer he achieved his best bowling performance, taking 10 wickets for 120 in the game with Hampshire at Trent Bridge. He exceeded 1,000 runs in each of his last five seasons with the county, his highest aggregate being 1,765, average 44.07, in 1937. His biggest innings was 184 against Leicestershire at Nottingham the following year a display featured by brilliant driving. After giving up county cricket, he coached in the north of England and later at Wrekin College and for Worcestershire C.C.C.
