George Gibson Galloway, was one of several amateurs who assisted in the finance of the County side and thus was given a place in the team for three matches in 1837;  he also appeared - just once - for the Gentlemen of Nottinghamshire, in 1844.  His record was similar (and similarly modest) to that of his contemporary John Foxcraft, with a highest score of 11 runs in eight innings and not used as a bowler. Galloway featured in local Nottingham cricket from 1826 to 1850.

His date of birth is not recorded but he was christened in February 1803; in 1842 he was elected, as a Liberal, to the town Council. His firm, a hosiery manufacturer, was in George St, Nottingham. In 1859 he emigrated in New Zealand but returned to Nottingham in 1866. George Galloway died in his home city in August 1867.
