Ray Spencer joined Aston Villa as a junior, turning professional in June 1950. Despite remaining at Villa Park until March 1958, when he joined Darlington, he never made the Villa first team. He played 98 league games, mainly at wing half, for Darlington, scoring 5 goals, and opened the scoring in Darlington's shock defeat of West Ham United in the 1961 League Cup, before moving to Torquay United in June 1961. He made 59 league appearances for Torquay, scoring once, before leaving to join Bath City in July 1963 having lost his place to Geoff Cox.
