Angus Gunn

Promising young keeper, now a member of the senior team...

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 of 2013 and was an integral member of the under-19s squad which qualified from Group D of the inaugural UEFA Youth League.

 

Gunn was the recognised first choice goalkeeper for the EDS and won his first England u21 cap in the 2015/16 season, featuring for Gareth Southgate's side as the won the Toulon tournament in the summer of 2016.

 

After saving three of Borussia Dortmund's penalties in their pre-season match with City, Gunn is now firmly in place as the third choice between the sticks behind experienced heads Claudio Bravo and Willy Caballero and has already appeared a couple of times on the bench during 2016/17
