Boss gives us his verdict on his former skipper's switch to Tranmere
David Artell believes that George Ray’s move to Tranmere Rovers is a good one after the centre-half and former captain decided to end his long association with Crewe Alexandra this summer.
Ray, 25, has signed a two-year deal at Prenton Park and Artell says that now is in the ball in his court to establish himself as a League One centre-half.
David told crewealex.net: “I think it is a good move for George. It is a league higher and Tranmere are a club on the up. They have had back-to-back promotions and have a good manager in Micky Mellon.
“Now the ball is in George’s court for him to go and make his mark in League One. He has to establish himself as a League One centre-half.
“Good luck to him. I haven’t spoken to him but I will. I spoke to Jordan (Bowery) and his agent and wished him all the best and I will do the same with George.
“There is no bitterness from me or our side. That is football. That is life and I have no hard feelings. I have no hard feelings when someone wants to try and better themselves at a higher level if the move is right for them. “
