Timeline

  • Signed For Dundee United

At the outbreak of WW2, United obtained permission to play him and he was in the side throughout season 1939-40, playing his part in taking United to the Emergency War Cup final. He was called up for military service in May 1940.

  • Dundee United put the Warriors through their paces at Ochilview. And if the margin was slender there was no doubt about the visitors being the more skilful side. Gray missed a penalty for the homesters, but against that United might well have gained another two goals but for their keeper's remarkable clearances of shots from White and Gardiner.
