One of the most influential signings Everton ever made, Gray joined the club in November 1983 from Wolves.

His personality, bravery and commitment rubbed off on the squad and Everton conquered heights that were unimagined during his explosive but short-lived spell with the Blues.

Gray scored in the 2-0 FA Cup final win over Watford in 1984 and he also netted another vital goal a year later when Everton beat Rapid Vienna 3-1 in Rotterdam to win the European Cup Winners Cup a year later, just weeks after the league title had been secured.

He proved a vital player in the run-in to the 1984/85 season following a serious injury to Adrian Heath that affored him the opportunity to forge an impressive partnership with fellow Scot Graeme Sharp. His ceaseless energy and willingness to put his head where other players wouldn't put their feet endeared Gray to the Goodison faithful and proved pivotal in helping provide the side with the driving force to deliver two trophies and go within a whisker of a treble - losing out in the FA Cup final to Manchester United after extra time.

The striker spent just two seasons at the Club before a shock move to Aston Villa in 1985 - paving the way for the arrival of Gary Lineker from Leicester City.
