Jabba's Comments

It can't have been easy for Frank Gray to live in the shadow of his brother, but since he ended up with more caps and a European Cup Winners medal, it didn't turn out that bad for him in the end.

With Eddie well know, many clubs were competing for Frank's signature when he turned professional in 1971, but he chose Leeds and nearly matched his brother's feat by scoring on his full debut (he'd previously appeared as a sub). Playing at left back and in midfield he was a useful utility player and established himself as Scotland's left-back for the 1982 World Cup.

He returned to Leeds after his stint at Forest, and played under his brother's management before seeking a final break from Leeds and moving up to the north-east where he helped Sunderland gain promotion from Division 3.

Stewart Kidd says: I lived round the corner from him and wenmt to school with his younger brother

Eamonn Dolan says: I saw Frankie upstairs on a bus in Dublin (circa 1981). He asked the conductor to let him off at the FAI offices at Merrion Square. What was he doing there? Why?

pAUL says: Do you have Frank Gray's mailing address ? I hear he is a Football Agent with some lower Division players on his books, PLEASE HELP !!!

Hussain Al-Alawi says: Frank Gray became My School's Football coach in Bahrain in 1998

Angus Martin says: i grew up with eddie and frank. watched frank play from a very young age.he played with a team in castlemilk glasgow called croftfoot united. his manager was called bob mckirdy.
