Angus Gunn

Goalkeeper

Date of birth

22 January 1996

Place of birth

Norwich, England

Joined City

July 2011

Son of Norwich City institution Bryan Gunn, Angus didn’t have to look far for inspiration for a career between the posts. 

Sharp reflexes and strong wrists are just two of the characteristics that attracted England u16s coach Kenny Swain to Gunn for their Victory Shield campaign in 2011/12 and he went on to represent the Three Lions at under-17 level last season.

His ambitious streak was highlighted when shortly after signing his first-year scholarship with City he was already targeting a regular place in the Elite Development Squad for the Next Gen Series, however, a troublesome hip injury took a huge chunk out of Angus's season.

Gunn returned for the final few months of the season and was one of City under-18s' best players, saving a couple of penalties and pulling off a string of eye-catching saves to steady the ship as the age-group enjoyed a solid end to the 2012/13 campaign.

Angus signed as a first-year pro in the summer.
