George Gray

Friday February 5th 2021

The club were saddened to learn of the passing of our former player George Gray on the morning of Thursday 4th February at the age of 90.

George Gray signed for Raith Rovers from Balgonie Scotia on the 2nd of February 1951.

He was a goalkeeper and made his debut against Queen of the South in a 2-0 win on the 18th of July 1951 in the the St Mungo’s Cup, the game was played at Celtic Park in front of a crowd of 6,000.

Ten days later, George played in the St Mungo’s semi-final against Celtic at Hampden Park in front of a crowd of 48,837. Celtic won the game 3-1.

The following season, George went on to play a further seven times for the Rovers, deputising for regular keeper George Johnstone. He kept a clean sheet against Hearts in a 2-0 League Cup win, and earned the nickname “Fearless George” from the Rovers supporters.

George Gray’s time at Raith Rovers came to an end when he left for Colchester United on the 30th of April 1954. He then signed for Dundee United.

Our thoughts are with the Gray family at this sad time.

 

Rovers take on Aberdeen in an 'A' Division game at Stark's Park. Rovers lose the game 2-1 with Joe McLaughlin missing an 88th minute penalty for the home side which would have secured a valuable point to stave off relegation.
