Rod, Ray and Danny Wallace at Southampton,  Rod and Ray are twins. Rod signed for Leeds and scored the goal of the season in 93/94,  Danny had a decent run at Man Utd just as they were starting to get good.  Ray kinda disappeared into lower league football.  

Thanks, good write up on them here:

Brothers in Arms: How Danny, Rod and Ray Wallace Made Footballing History

It is highly likely that their achievement back in October 1988 will never be matched, and as such, they should be remembered alongside the likes of Viv Anderson, Brendon Batson, Laurie Cunningham, Cyrille Regis, and Justin Fashanu as black footballing pioneers.

Let’s hope that the Ramseys do match that achievement, or rather make Premier League (when football began) history.

So have 3 brothers ever played together in the same team?

We had the Elm brothers in Sweden. David, Rasmus and Viktor who all played for Kalmar FF in the top division together.

Rasmus has 39 caps for Sweden, Viktor has 10 and David played 2 seasons for Fulham in the PL but he was only a fringe player.

Different sport but the three Barrett brothers (Beauden, Scott and Jordie) all played for New Zealand in the last Rugby World Cup - that’s some achievement!

Not in the same team but there's the 3 Watts in the NFL but the middle one is nothing special, the other 2 are or were top players

The biggest family might be the bosas, joey is a charger nick is a 49er, their dad played, their grandad played, their cousin plays for the bills, their uncle and grand uncle also played, maybe most interestingly their great grandfather didn't play, he was the boss of the Chicago mafia...

Ray signed for Leeds as well. That must have been a sweetener to get Rod there!

Danny was a real talent but he got MS i think?

If we take the step to hockey this is kind of cool,

The Sutter family are one of the most famous families in the National Hockey League (NHL). Six brothers: Brent, Brian, Darryl, Duane, Rich and Ron, reached the NHL in the late 1970s and early 1980s. The second generation of Sutters has reached the NHL, as Brandon Sutter, Brody Sutter and Brett Sutter were members of the Carolina Hurricanes organization for a few seasons.

Theres two brothers played for Arsenal in football together and cricket for Middlesex together. One of which went on to have a great test career averaging over 50 with the bat. The Compton brothers.
