'A tremendous servant' - Jenny Gunn retires from international cricket

After 15 years and 259 appearances, Gunn has called time on her international career

Managing Director of Women's Cricket, Clare Connor, said: "Jenny has been the most tremendous servant to England Women's cricket throughout the 15 years she has played for England.

"Her longevity, work ethic and commitment have been hugely impressive across both the amateur and professional eras and on countless occasions she has delivered match-winning performances for the team with both bat and ball.

"Jenny has been an exceptional role model for our sport and we are so grateful for everything she has done.

Managing Director of Women's Cricket Clare Connor

"Very few international cricketers have carried themselves with so much humility and shown such care for her team-mates as Jenny. She will be very missed by players and staff alike."

Gunn said: "I have made one of the hardest decisions and decided the time has come to retire from international cricket. I started as a young kid playing the game I loved for fun and I could only dream of becoming a professional cricketer.

"I’ve been lucky enough to play in some great teams and to be part of some amazing battles over the years but as a small girl I always said I wanted to put a World Cup medal next to my dad's European Cup winner's medal, and there are now three of them next to his medal on the mantelpiece!

"I’m so grateful for the support throughout my career and I couldn’t have done it without my friends. 

"But most of all, I couldn't have done it without my family, all of whom have been there for me every step of the way."
