Craig Ramage (born 30 March 1970 in Derby, England) is a former English footballer who played in midfield for six clubs, most notably Watford.

Playing career[edit]

Ramage started his career in his hometown as a trainee with Derby County. He played 42 games scoring four goals at Derby, during which time he also spent a short period on loan at Wigan Athletic.

In 1994, he made a £90,000 move to Watford. Ramage was a big hit at Vicarage Road and he finished just one game short of 100 starts. He was also a prolific scorer, and he netted 27 times in his 104 appearances. He spent a month on loan at Peterborough United in 1997 before he moved at the end of the season to Bradford City.

Ramage's time at City was a tough one. He was suspended for the start of the season and it was not until the seventh game against Middlesbrough he made his full debut. He made a total of 32 appearances but scored just once in the final game of the season as City lost 3-1 to Portsmouth.[1]

Ramage was limited to just three substitute appearances in 1998-99 as Bradford earned promotion to the Premier League. It was little surprise that Ramage left during the summer to join Notts County where he started 50 games in three seasons.

Ramage is now a property developer in his home town and also play regularly for Watford in the Masters. He also commentates on BBC Radio Derby for the Derby County matches and on three counties radio for Watford matches.
