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.

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?
