Kevin John Gray (born January 7 1972 in Sheffield, England) is an English footballer, playing as a defender for Chesterfield.

Football career

He started his career at Mansfield Town signing as a trainee in July 1990 and had a successful 4 year period at "The Stags". In 1994 Gray joined Huddersfield Town at the newly built McAlpine Stadium and played there for 8 years and played just under 300 games for "The Terriers" and he played one game on loan at Stockport County in 2000.

While at Huddersfield, Gray tackled Bradford City striker Gordon Watson in February, 1997, the sliding tackle broke Watson's leg and left him out injured for 16 months. Watson successfully sued Gray for negligence and was awarded £50,000 in interim damages.
