Biography


David Gray was one of the many players brought to the club as it tried to recapture the highs enjoyed at the beginning of the fifties.

Before coming to Dens to follow in his brother Tommy's footsteps, the defender's career encompassed Rangers. Preston and Blackburn. A full-back, he was signed in 1954, but never quite fully established himself in the first team.

He made a total of thirty-five appearances during his two years at the club. After being released at the end of the 1955-56 season, he crossed the road to join United for whom he played for two seasons prior to hanging up his boots. Later, he became Forfar's trainer.
