THE Bluebirds have moved to bring another new face to Holker Street in the form of defender George Ray, who joins from Exeter City on a two-year deal.

Just like new teammate Billy Waters, Ray is a product of the Crewe Alexandra academy.

George rose through the ranks, making his professional debut in the 2013 Football League Trophy Final, and in doing so, became the first player to make his professional debut in a cup final held at Wembley Stadium.

Ray has made over 200 appearances in the EFL, with spells at Crewe Alexandra, Tranmere Rovers, Exeter City and Leyton Orient all appearing on the towering defender’s impressive CV.

The 28 year old spent time on loan at Brisbane Road in the latter half of last season, appearing in The O's 2-0 victory over The Bluebirds in April.
