An uncompromising centre-half, Raynes joined Crewe in May 2017 as Dave Artell’s first summer signing.

The 30-year-old penned a two-year-contract after rejecting a new offer from previous Club Carlisle United.

Raynes started out his career at Stockport County in 2004 & he was on the books of the Club for six years, making 159 appearances before joining Scunthorpe United in February 2010 for an undisclosed fee.

After 18-months with The Iron, he joined Rotherham for a season in 2011/12 before moving on to Oxford United for three seasons, where he made 92 appearances prior to linking up with The Cumbrians in 2015.

Making a total of 97 appearances in his two years at Brunton Park, Raynes opted for a change despite Carlisle making an offer to attempt to keep hold of their Club captain.

Featuring regularly during the first half of 2017/18, Raynes lost his place in the team in early February, featuring only sporadically thereafter.
