Biography:
A young stocky striker, Billy Kee spent 2009/10 on loan at Accrington Stanley from Leicester City. He was part of the Northern Ireland side that claimed the 2009 Milk Cup Elite title and in September 2009, still just eighteen, he was called into the senior Northern Ireland squad. He was disappointed to be released by Leicester in May 2010 but quickly signed for Torquay United. In August 2011 he scored his first goals at  Under-21international level, a virtuoso hattrick against the Faroe Islands, so becoming the first Northern Ireland player to score three in a match at that level.  Early in the 2011/12 season Kee left Torquay for personal reasons. He move closer to "home" by joining Burton Albion for a fee believed to be around £20,000 and a startling run of goalscoring form saw him crowned Football League Young Player of the Month for October. In August 2014 he moved on to Scunthorpe for a fee believed to be around £250,000, earning Torquay a further £80,000 through a sell on clause. He failed to start a league game or score a goal for the Iron and joined Mansfield on a three-month loan deal mid-season.
