Career[edit]

Born in Bury, Greater Manchester, Lomax started his career at Oldham Athletic. After spending seven years in the first team squad, he made a total of 82 appearances for them.[3] During those seven years he had a loan spell at Rochdale in 2007, where he made 10 appearances,[4] and Chesterfield, who he signed for on an emergency loan in November 2010,[5] for whom he appeared five times before an injury meant his return to Oldham.[6]

In July 2010 he was transfer-listed by the club, along with five other first team players.[7] His contract was terminated by Oldham on 31 January 2011 and a day later he signed for Shrewsbury Town on a six-month contract.[8] He made his dubut for the club coming on as an 86th minute substitute for Jermaine Grandison in a 3–0 defeat to Bury on 1 March 2011,[9] which proved to be his last appearance, being released at the end of the 2010–11 season.[10]

After his release from Shrewsbury, Lomax went on trial with Conference National side Barrow, Dave Bayliss, manager of Barrow said, "Kelvin is a lad we do want to sign, we'll see what's in the budget and hopefully get something done." On 12 August 2011, he completed his move to Barrow after his successful trial period.[11] Just a day later, he made his debut for the club as part of a 1–1 draw with Tamworth.[12] Just three days after his debut he was sent off in a 3–1 defeat to York City.[13] After 26 appearances and no goals,[14] he was released at the end of the 2011–12 season.[15]

On 10 August 2012, he signed for Conference National side Hyde.[16] He made his Hyde debut on 14 August 2012, coming on as a substitute for Tunji Moses in their 0–0 draw with Barrow.[17] After making 34 appearances without scoring he left Hyde to sign for Australian side Shepparton United. He made his debut for the Australian club in their 1–0 defeat to Shepparton South on 14 April 2013.[18] He scored his first goal for the club just over a month later, scoring in a 3–1 win over Cobram SC on 19 May 2013.[19] He left Australia at the end of their season, having scored six goals in seventeen games for Shepparton United.[20]

On his return to England he signed for his local side Ramsbottom United on 31 October 2013.[21] He made his Ramsbottom debut in a 4–0 win over Harrogate Railway Athletic on 26 October 2013.[21] He left the club two months later having made twelve appearances, nine of which in the league.[22] On 1 January 2014, Lomax re-signed for Conference Premier side Hyde,[23] making the first appearance of his second spell on the same day in a 3–0 defeat to Macclesfield Town.[24]
