Born at 33, Hamilton Place, Aberdeen, on June 21st, 1873, G. O. Gauld was educated at Aberdeen Grammar School and Aberdeen University. He played cricket for Aberdeenshire in 1900, 1901 and 1902. His best performances with the ball, as a very fast right-arm bowler, were 7 for 9 v. Forfarshire and 5 for 6 v. Blairgowrie. He moved from Adberdeen to Elvington, Yorkshire, in 1902 and then to Nottingham in 1909. Whilst in Nottingham he became associated with Nottingham Amateurs C.C. and on June 12th, 1913, he scored 154 for that club v. Uppingham School. When A.O. Jones fell ill in 1913 Nottinghamshire was captained by G. T. Branston for two matches and then J. Iremonger. Dr. Gauld was invited to take over from Iremonger and made his first-class debut v. Kent at Trent Bridge on June 30th, July 1st and 2nd. He played in eight consecutive matches as captain until Jones had recovered sufficiently to return to the field. In 1914 Dr. Gauld again captained the side when Jones was forced to retire and v. Derbyshire at Trent Bridge he hit 90 in 65 minutes - his only notable score in first-class matches. His final first-class was v. A.I.F. at Trent Bridge on July 24th, 25th and 26th in 1919, when he came into the XI in place of Carr. His complete first-class record reads:

In 1920 he became a member of the Nottinghamshire C.C.C. Committee, finally retiring in 1947, and from 1922 to 1935 he was honorary secretary. in August 1934 Dr. Gauld was the medical practitioner involoved in the controversial withdrawal of Voce from the Nottinghamshire v.
