Town capture Southampton defender Ramsay


We are delighted to confirm the signing of Kayne Ramsay, on a permanent deal from Southampton.

The 21-year-old right back started his youth career at Chelsea, before making the move to Southampton and signing a first professional contract in 2018.

Ramsay was handed a first Southampton start in December 2018 against Manchester City, becoming the youngest Premier League starter of the 2018/19 season.

The talented defender would then be sent on a six-month loan to League One Shrewsbury in an effort to get regular first team football.

Signing a contract extension in February 2021, Ramsay would initially join Crewe Alexandra on loan for the 2021/22 season, making 15 League One appearances in the first half of the campaign.

Ramsay was recalled in January 2022 and sent to Scottish Premiership side Ross County for more exposure to first team football, but now becomes Simon Weaver’s 12th signing of the Summer window…

“It’s another exciting signing for the club, he’s quick, really strong with a great build on him for a wing back.
“We want him to be aggressive in his attacking style of play and just be himself and excite the fans, we need outlets at wing back so we can press aggressively, but also get up and down the pitch.

“There was a lot of interest in him from League One so we’ve had to be patient because we understand that ambitious players want to play as high as possible, but we’re delighted to be able to bring in a player we have wanted for some time.”

Ramsay will wear the number 20 shirt, and is available for today’s clash with Crawley.
