Kyle McVey established himself in the centre of Coleraine's defence while still a teenager. Multi-honoured by Northern Ireland at representative level, prior to winning eight under-21 caps he played at the Milk Cup and was part of the squad that played at the 2005 UEFA Under-19 Championship Finals and he has since appeared for the Under-23 side that has taken part in the International Challenge Trophy.

One of the highest rated players in the Irish Premiership, McVey has remained with Coleraine despite interest from bigger clubs. With the Bannsiders he has appeared in Irish Cup and League Cup final defeats, but his only senior honours to date have come in the North West Cup.

McVey left Coleraine in May 2013 having stalled on a new contract. He subsequently joined Linfield.
