The story behind the picture – Gray, a true Red

He served the club with distinction over eight seasons and has to go down as one of the club’s all-time greats of the non-league era.

Alan Gray joined the club initially in 1998 and, in two spells at Borough Park, clocked-up nearly 400 appearances for the Reds, several as skipper.

The photograph was taken during the 2006-07 season when he was presented with an engraved glass bowl after becoming a member of the 300 club.  At the time he was only the third player to achieve that feat following on from Graham Gill and Lee Copeland.

He would go on to make 367 appearances for Reds with a further 30 as a substitute.
