James Malcolm Hunt (born 12 December, 1976) is an English footballer. He currently plays for Gainsborough Trinity as a Midfielder. He was born shortly after his namesake became Formula One World Champion.



Hunt started his professional career with Notts County before moving on to play for Northampton Town and Oxford United. In 2004 he signed with Bristol Rovers, and he became the club's captain until November 2006, when a disagreement with first team coach Paul Trollope about Hunt being named as a substitute instead of being in the starting 11 led to him being transfer listed.[1] He joined Grimsby Town in early 2007 on loan and was instrumental in the club's successful fight to avoid relegation. He was out of contract with the Pirates in the summer so signed permanently for The Mariners. Hunt cemented himself as one of the first team regulars in the side managed by Alan Buckley during the 2007-2008 season. Buckley was sacked as manager in the early part of the following season, and when he was replaced by Mike Newell, he opted to bring in such players as Jean-Paul Kamudimba Kalala. Hunt found himself froze out of the first team, until the late season when he managed to re-established his place in Grimsby's first team following injuries to Kalala and Dean Sinclair. Hunt managed to hold a regular position down and became an integral part of the team that for the third season in a row managed to avoid relegation. Despite earning a place back in the team, Hunt was released by Newell, stating at the age of 33, Grimsby could not offer Hunt first team football. Hunt signed for Gainsborough Trinity on May 29th.
