Reverend Kenneth Reginald Gunnery Hunt (born 24 February 1884 in Oxford - died 28 April 1949 in Heathfield) was an English amateur football (soccer) player who competed in the 1908 Summer Olympics and in the 1920 Summer Olympics.

Hunt was a member of Queen's College at Oxford University, where he earned four football Blues between 1904 and 1907.[1]

Having been part of the Wolverhampton Wanderers team who had won the FA cup on 25 April 1908 (scoring the opening goal in a 3-1 victory over Newcastle United), he was a member of the English team, which won the gold medal in the 1908 Summer Olympics football tournament.

He also made two appearances for the full England team in 1911 against Wales and Scotland.

He again played in the 1920 Olympic tournament in Antwerp, when England lost in the first round to Norway.

In 1909, he was ordained as a Church of England vicar. He went on to become a Master and subsequently a Housemaster at Highgate School. He became Housemaster of Grindal House where the House colours are still to this day Black and Gold in tribute to Hunt's playing days at Wolverhampton Wanderers. One of his students at Highgate was Murray Walker.[2]
