Newmains, Lanarkshire born inside forward Ken Gunn played junior football for Newmains in 1926 before joining Second Division Swansea Town in 1927, making his Football League debut at Hull City in April 1928, scoring in a 2-0 victory. Although in and out of the side, when given the opportunity he was a regular goalscorer for Swansea, including a hat-trick in a 5-0 won over Preston North End in March 1929 and another against Burnley in November 1931 in a season in which he finished The Swans’ second top goalscorer with 15 goals, and when he joined Port Vale along with Billy Tabram for a £400 fee in May 1933 he had netted 36 times in 98 appearances for Swansea.

He quickly made an impact at his new club, scoring both Vale’s goals in a 2-1 win over Southampton at The Old Recreation Ground on 2nd September. He went on to score eight goals in 39 appearances in the 1933-34 season. At Vale he was converted into a wing half, Gunn scored once in 28 games in 1935-36 as the club suffered relegation, Gunn playing a further season for Vale in the Third Division (North). He was transferred to Third Division (South) club Northampton Town in May 1937 after 10 goals in 138 appearances for Vale, playing for The Cobblers until the outbreak of the Second World War effectively ended his career, having scored once in 79 appearances. He later guested for Portsmouth during the War before his eventual retirement.
