Birthdays
1948 Eddie Gray (70)

Eddie 'The Last Waltz` Gray celebrates his 70th birthday today. Eddie is in the top ten appearances makers for Leeds making 577 appearances for the club in a 19-year playing career at Elland Road.

He also managed the club on two occasions and he now works for the club as part of the commentary team at all Leeds first team games.

Gray will probably be best remembered for his two goals against Burnley in April 1970 and you can see them both in the first minute of this clip.
