After returning to the training field in March 2015, he was again ruled out for a following nine months halting the winger’s progress. Once he was over his early injury struggles he moved to Rotherham on loan in January 2017 making five appearances before the end of the season. During his loan spell, Bray made his move permanent for an undisclosed fee signing a deal until the end of the 2018-2019 season.

Upon signing his loan deal, Bray said “I’m really looking forward to getting back playing again. I believe that Weston is the perfect place for me as it’s local and they like to play good football. I can’t wait to get started and help out as much as I can”
Manager Marc McGregor said “We are pleased to secure such a great signing until the end of the season. Alex is a quick, direct wide-man who can go past players with ease. Last season, Alex was helping Forest Green secure League Two football and we are lucky to have him. The chairman has worked hard to get this over the line and we are very thankful. We also would like to thank Rotherham with helping. They have been a pleasure to deal with”.
