Jonathan Hunt

Jonathan Hunt
Norwich Career: Trial (February 2000)
Current Club: AFC Hornchurch (Ryman League)
Date of Birth: 02/11/1971 
Nationality: English


Craig Russell, of Manchester City, and Jonathan Hunt (Sheffield United) joined Norwich's reserves team squad that traveled to Colchester United for the Avon Insurance Combination League game on 1st February 2000. Both players would have been available on free transfers should Bruce Rioch decided to take things further on. Hunt, who followed Barry Fry for much of his career (Barnet to Southend United to Birmingham City) joined Sheffield United from Derby County, although he briefly had a loan stint at Ipswich Town, and played in the derby game at Portman Road last season. At the end of the 1998/99 season, he had made 33 appearances for Barnet, 49 for Southend (6 goals), 77 for Birmingham (18 goals), 25 for Derby (2 goals), 13 for Sheffield United (2 goals) and 6 for Ipswich.

Neither Russell or Hunt impressed in the 1-0 defeat at Colchester. On Transfer Deadline Day, Jonathan joined Cambridge United on loan until the end of the 1999/2000 season. Returning to Sheffield, Hunt was freed from his contract on 21st July 2000.

At the end of July 2000, Jonathan teamed up with former manager Barry Fry again when he joined Peterborough on trial. However he returned to London and signed a short term contract with Wimbledon in August 2000. This was extended in September 2000 to last until the end of the 2000/01 season. Barry Fry made an attempt on transfer deadline day to reacquaint himself with Hunt as he bid to take Jonathan on loan to Peterborough. However no deal could be agreed. Hunt was released by the Dons in May 2001. In October 2001, Teamtalk reported that Jonathan would be having a trial with Second Division Reading.

Jonathan signed for Peterborough at the end of September 2002 on a free transfer

After many seasons out of the game, Jonathan rejoined St Albans City in 2008/9 and then moved to AFC Hornchurch in September 2009
