Kevin is a midfielder who graduated from Sporting Fingal's U20 side in 2009. In 2010 Kevin made 11 league appearances for the Ravens including four league starts.

In February 2011 Kevin went on trial at Longford Town, playing in a pre-season friendly against Derry City on the same evening that Sporting Fingal officially folded, February 10th 2011. However, a few days later he signed for Shelbourne.

Kevin made his debut for Shelbourne on the opening night of the 2011 season in a 2-1 away win over Longford and he made 26 league appearances, scoring twice, as the Reds won promotion from the First Division. He also played in the FAI Cup final that year as Shels went down to Sligo Rovers at the Aviva Stadium after a penalty shootout.

The following year Kevin cemented his reputation as one of the leading young talents in the domestic game with another 24 league appearances as Shels returned to the top flight and at the end of 2012 he left The Reds to join for English League One side Yeovil Town, signing for manager Gary Johnson on 1st January 2013.

Kevin spent two years at Cheltenham before signing for Forest Green Rovers.
