Gifford known to Worcestershire folk as "Apple Norm" served his apprenticeship as a professional cricketer in the Worcestershire second team during 1959, and when in May 1960 he took 2-25 from 18 overs in a drawn Second XI match against Kent, he was called up to the first team for the game against the same opposition that began the very next day. Gifford took four wickets in Kent's first innings, but Worcestershire collapsed to their second-lowest ever score of 25 all out on their way to an innings defeat. In the next game against Cambridge University Gifford took ten wickets in the match, including second-innings analysis of 15.5-7-18-6.
