Raymond played most of his football at full-back or centre-half-back. He joined Richmond from St.Pat’s College, Ballarat, Old Boys and spent three seasons with the club. Ray was a close-checking defender who often played it safe by punching the ball away from opposing forwards. He left Richmond due to a lack of senior opportunities and became South Melbourne’s regular full-back for four seasons. He later served as a selector with the Sydney Swans. He returned to Richmond briefly as the Under/19’s coach for half of the 1986 season. He now lives in Glen Iris and is involved in the sporting goods trade.
