Centre-half Ray is a Crewe academy graduate, who has also represented Wales at U21 level.
The 23-year-old progressed over the 2012/13 season, and made his first professional Alex debut at Wembley Stadium during the JPT Final win over Southend.
Ray really began to establish himself in the starting XI in 2014/15, scoring a memorable first senior goal against neighbours Port Vale and a second away at Doncaster Rovers in February 2015 with 37 appearances that season.
He made a further 25 outings in 2015/16, but barely featured during the first half of 2016/17 until Dave Artell took charge in January, with George going on to captain the side to help steer the ship to League Two safety.
Ending last season with 27 appearances, Ray surpassed 100 first team appearances for Crewe during the run-in.
