The former Crewe Alexandra captain, George Ray, has completed his switch to newly promoted Tranmere Rovers. The 25-year-old centre-half has signed a two-year-deal at Prenton Park and joins Micky Mellon’s side in League One following their play-off success last season.
The Crewe Alexandra Academy graduate ends his long association with the club after rejecting the offer of a new deal at Gresty Road in the search of a fresh challenge.
Ray made his debut at Wembley Stadium as a late substitute in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Final win over Southend United in 2013 and he went on to make over 150 appearances for the club, scoring five goals.
His form for Crewe saw him capped at Under-21 level by Wales and Ray was named captain of the club after David Artell succeeded Steve Davis as manager in January 2017.
Everyone at Crewe Alexandra would like to thank George for his long service to the Football Club and we wish him well with his future career.
