Ray won everything at Liverpool before joining us in 1981 and went on to make 330 appearances for us in all competitions before retiring in 1987. He lifted the FA Cup in 1982 but was injured for the 1984 UEFA Cup Final.
Capped 61 times by England, Ray won five league titles, three European Cups, two UEFA Cups, the FA Cup and League Cup at Liverpool.
Brad completed a record of 310 successive matches in the Premier League during his time at Spurs. On the bench eight times in cup matches this season at the of 43, Brad now has 729 senior appearances to his name and was capped 82 times by the USA, including appearances in the 1998 and 2002 World Cups.
"I can't wait for this event," said Brad. "I’m honoured to be at a table that says legends of goalkeeping and having those two beside me.
"I used to watch them both. Ray was Mr Consistent. He was a goalkeeper I followed growing up as a kid because I watched a lot of Liverpool matches. He was an unbelievable talent, a great man, a great goalkeeper.
"And there will be another legend stood next to me in Pat Jennings, a true gentleman and again, a class goalkeeper.
"I remember watching Pat on video from the World Cups in 1982 and 1986, he was an incredible goalkeeper. His hands were so big, he would just come for crosses like they were nothing!
"It's been great to be around Pat at the Training Centre, a great guy."
