Biography:
Kevin Ramsey won a single Northern Ireland Under-21 cap when he played in the first half of a 1-0 win over Scotland at his home ground, Drumahoe, in May 2006.

A former Celtic youth team player, Ramsey returned to Northern Ireland in 2003 when he joined Ballymena United. Big things were expected from the teenager but, although given an early chance, he stayed only briefly at Warden Street before moving closer to home to play with Limavady. In 2004/05, his only full season with the Roesiders, Ramsey scored twenty goals and claimed a North West Cup winner's medal following a 2-0 final win over Institute.

Ramsey moved on to Stute that summer and although he managed a respectable tally of seven goals in 21 games, the club were relegated from the Premier League. He remained at Drumahoe for the following season firing home a total of 15 goals as an immediate return to the top-flight was secured. He also claimed five goals when coming from the bench as Stute came from behind to win 7-2 in a Carnegie Intermediate League Cup match against Queen's. Dundela were defeated 2-1 in the final at Dungannon.

In July 2007 Ramsey joined Finn Harps. He suffered an early set-back as he suffered a fourth broken ankle in two years and he never really hit form during eighteen months at Finn Park. A return to Institute in January 2009 saw a return to form as he managed eleven goals in the second half of the 2009/09 season. In May 2010 Ramsey missed a penalty in the promotion/relegation play-off against Donegal Celtic as Stute lost 1-0 on aggregate to go down.
