Career[edit]

Club[edit]

Born in Guadeloupe, Auvray left the island at 14 for Saint Martin and moved on to Europe to join SM Caen's youth system in 1994. With Caen, he featured with the club's reserve team in the Championnat de France amateur. In 2002, Auvray signed with amateur club GSI Pontivy and spent two seasons at the club. In 2004, he joined Vannes OC and had a successful career at the club spending five seasons there and amassing over 150 appearances for the club. During his time with Vannes, he helped the club achieve promotion to the professional division Ligue 2. In 2009, Auvray joined Nîmes Olympique, but after six months departed the club for personal reasons.[1]

In January 2010, he signed with Major League Soccer club Kansas City Wizards.[2] He was traded to New York Red Bulls on August 12, 2011 after requesting to be transferred.[3] New York announced in December that it would not exercise its contract option on Auvray.[4]

In December 2012, he signed with Brunei DPMM FC together with João Moreira [5] as a foreign player for the 2013 S.League season.[6] However, his stay in Brunei was brief as he was released by May 2013.[7]
