Leeds United legend Eddie Gray set to star in new 2023 documentary
Eddie Gray etched his name into the Leeds United history books by making over 500 appearances for the club – his story is set to be told in a documentary.
Gray was part of the iconic Don Revie era in which Leeds United were transformed into league and cup winners.
The documentary, set to release in 2023, is named ‘No Footprints in the Snow’ after the iconic term said by Revie about Gray’s style of play.
Speaking to the Yorkshire Evening Post, Gray opened up on the documentary’s progress and his reasons behind participating.
“I don’t look at it [as a] personal thing about myself really, I just look upon it as a tribute to the manager I played for and the players I played with, you know a lot of them are not here now, and just that era for the football club,” said Gray.
“I joined the club in 1963 and that was the start of the club picking themselves up, you know, and it was a great time for the football club and obviously the club are in a position in the present day, really because of what Don [Revie] achieved.”

Trip down memory lane
News of a new Leeds United documentary is exciting and is bound to pique the interest of a few Whites fans.
The Revie era is obviously something that has been largely covered already in documentaries and films, but Gray’s input and storytelling will add a whole new element of entertainment.
Gray recently confirmed that he’s still currently working with the team to shoot parts of the documentary, including a nostalgic section back at his Scottish roots.
“I speak to them all the time, it’s just basically the history of how I came to the club and what the club was like then. There’ll be things that will be done in the next few months, like, I’ll go to Scotland to where I was born and things like that, [my] old school and coming to Leeds, and just going through a few things.”
Much of the documentary’s investment came through crowd-funding, with fans able to contribute financially towards the making of the documentary via the film’s website – The Eddie Gray Story.
As the club set off on a new voyage and adventure under Jesse Marsch this season, it’ll be good nostalgic viewing to go back and watch Revie’s team as never seen before.
