Ray left school to join Tranmere Rovers
Ray Stubbs has enjoyed a varied career.

He was initially a professional footballer, leaving school to join Tranmere Rovers FC where he played for five years.

After ending his playing career, he stayed with the club in an administrative capacity and then spent three years with BBC Radio Merseyside as a reporter and presenter.

In 1986, Ray moved to BBC Manchester as an assistant producer, working on sports including snooker, darts and bowls, and on A Question Of Sport.

He also worked as a producer, reporter and presenter on BBC Two's investigative sports series On The Line, which took him to Italy in 1990 to report on England football fans at the World Cup.

Later that year, Ray began working as a reporter on Grandstand, Match Of The Day and Sportsnight.

He reported from the Irish camp during the 1994 World Cup in America, and was the BBC's reporter-in-residence in the England camp during Euro 96 and the 1998 World Cup in France.

Ray is part of the Grandstand presentation team and took over as the regular presenter of Football Focus for the 1999-2000 season from Gary Lineker.

He is also an occasional presenter of Match of the Day.

Ray co-hosted coverage of the 1998 Winter Olympics, co-presented coverage of the 1998 Commonwealth Games, and has also reported for BBC One's On Side.
