In a last-minute surprise move, just days before the start of the season, England allrounder Jenny Gunn has re-signed to play for Nottinghamshire in this year’s Women’s County Championship.
Gunn played for Notts almost her entire career, barring a couple of games for Yorkshire back in 2011, scoring over 3,000 runs and taking 95 wickets over 13 years, up until 2015 when they were relegated from Division 1 of the County Championship.
Following Notts’ demotion, Gunn joined Warwickshire for 3 seasons, but made just 15 appearances due to England commitments.
With over 250 England caps, Gunn – who was awarded an MBE for services to cricket in 2014 – has more experience than Jimi Hendrix; and although she’s played more of a supporting role for England recently, she was retained on a central contract this season and looks likely to be part of England’s plans for the World T20 in Australia early next year.
Now she returns to her home county as they look to battle-out what promises to be one of the closest County Championships in years.
If you are a Notts fan, you’ll be able to see Gunn in action for #YourCounty on Women’s County Cricket Day, as Notts take on Sussex at the Aldridge Academy in Brighton.
