Raymond grew up seeing Selhurst Park from his bedroom window, and was presented with his local side’s top scorer award as a child by Wilfried Zaha. His family connections to the club extend further, with his father also among Palace’s ranks as a youngster.
After trialling at Chelsea and Arsenal as a youngster, Raymond was scouted by Palace and joined the club as an eight year old.
He has been recognised by both England and Wales at Under-17 level and was unfortunate to miss much of the Under-18s title-challenge in 2020/21 through injury.
Raymond signed a contract extension in November 2021 and went on to make 21 apperances in all competitions for Rob Quinn's Under-18s, scoring six goals. He featured as part of the squad which travelled to Australia and Singapore in 2022/23 pre-season.
The midfielder earned a call-up to the Wales Under-21 side for the first time in September 2022. He finished the 22/23 campaign with 24 appearances and three assists in all competitions.
His only goal of the 22/23 came in the Premier League International Cup semi-final against Valencia at Selhurst Park, helping the Eagles on their way to the final.
Raymond scored his first goal of 2023/24 in the first game of the season against Manchester United, in the 98th minute, to claim all three points in a 3-2 win.
He made the first-team matchday squad for the first time in October 2023 - featuring on the bench against Nottingham Forest.
