James M. Gunning (25 June 1929 – 1993) was a Scottish professional football winger. He played in the Scottish Football League for Hibernian and in the English Football League for Manchester City and Barrow
Born in Helensburgh, Gunning was a junior with Wolverhampton Wanderers, but was unable to settle and returned to Scotland in 1946, signing for Hibernian as an amateur. He then joined the Royal Air Force; a posting in the Highlands allowed Gunning to play Highland League football for Forres Mechanics. After leaving the RAF, Gunning returned to Easter Road, but he found first team opportunities very limited as Hibs enjoyed the services of The Famous Five. He played once for Hibs in a league match, during the 1950-51 season.
Gunning signed for Manchester City in November 1950. During three seasons with the club, Gunning made 13 league appearances. He left City in 1953, joining non-league Weymouth but in 1954 returned to the Football League when he joined Barrow, playing ten times in the 1954-55 season.
