In March 1993 Gillingham loaned Kevin to Margate and he made his debut in midfield aged 17 in a 2-0 defeat against Baldock at Hartsdown Park on 27.3.93. It was his only appearance as he returned to Priestfield immediately afterwards.

Kevin was released by the Gills in the summer of 1993 and signed for Gravesend & Northfleet where he made 16 appearances (13 as sub) during the 1993/94 campaign.

He spent 1994/95 with Kent League Faversham and on 29.7.95 Kevin played for Margate in a friendly against Whitstable at Hartsdown shortly before moving to Hong Kong in the summer of 1995.

Kevin signed for Hong Kong Rangers and went on to spend three seasons with the club up to the end of the 1997/98 campaign, making 54 league appearances and scoring eight goals.

In May 1998 Kevin moved to Singapore to join Geylang United and made 15 appearances there before returning to England in November 1998.

After training with Barnet for a few weeks Kevin joined Irish club Bohemian in December 1998 and after making a good impression there he set up home in Ireland in March 1999.

Kevin went on to become a major star for the Bohs and after helping the club to avoid relegation during his first season he captained the Gypsies to their first ever Premier Division and Irish Cup double during 2000/01. The Bohs won the Premier Division title again during 2002/03 under his leadership and Kevin was chosen as the league's 'Player of the Year'.

By the end of the 2007 season Kevin had been with Bohemian for almost ten years and had made 352 appearances for the club, scoring 22 goals. He was still club captain.

Kevin retired in July 2008 aged 33 saying "I have had a good career but it is time to go...I don't feel like I am the player I once was and I don't want to turn up every week and collect my wages if I can't deliver, so I will finish playing now."

In October 2008 a testimonial game for Kevin saw his Bohemians X1 beat a Republic of Ireland X1 4-3 at Dalymount Park in Dublin.

After retiring as a player he started working for Manchester City as a scout.
