● Jim Gray, 1965 (SP)

probably born in Scotland

Jim Gray was probably born in Scotland, although his place and date of birth remain unknown to us. *

The 5' 10 (11st 5lbs) goalkeeper signed for Willie Thornton's Thistle on Tuesday, 20th September, 1960, having most recently been with Arthurlie.

He made his debut appearance on Saturday, 25th March, 1961, in a 3-2 win away to Airdrieonians in the SFL First Division.

Jim kept his first clean-sheet on Saturday, 7th October, 1961, in a 1-0 win at home to Dunfermline Athletic in the SFL First Division.

He registered the last of his 14 clean-sheets on Saturday, 30th April, 1966, in a 3-0 win at home to Falkirk in the SFL First Division.

Fittingly, that was actually the last of his 70 games for the club.

His club-list included Arthurlie, Partick Thistle and Raith Rovers.

Jim died in September, 2002, in South Africa. *
