Kevin Holt (born 25 January 1993) is a Scottish association footballer who plays for Scottish Premiership club Dundee, having started his career with Queen of the South.

Career[edit]

Holt joined Queen of the South in August 2010 and began playing for their Under-19 squad.[3] In June 2011 Holt was awarded the Jade Moore Memorial Trophy for being Queens under-19s player of the season.[4] Holt made his senior debut on 17 September 2011 as a substitute in a 4–1 victory against Greenock Morton in a Scottish First Division fixture replacing hat-trick scorer Kevin Smith.[5]

Holt made his first start on 12 November 2011 against Partick Thistle in a goalless home draw.[5] Holt was sent off against Dundee in December 2011 and this was his first ever dismissal.[5] Holt's debut in the Scottish Cup was in a 1–0 away win against Partick Thistle on 7 January 2012 with the goal scored by Daniel Carmichael.[6] This was Queens first win in the competition since their 4–3 semi-final win against Aberdeen in 2008 at Hampden Park.[6] At the end of the 2011–12 season Queens were relegated to the Scottish Second Division but despite this Holt remained with the club, having signed a new contract in December 2011.[7]

In May 2015, Holt signed a pre-contract with Scottish Premiership club Dundee and the move was completed during the summer of 2015.[8]

Personal life[edit]

Kevin Holt is the son of the Dumfries born footballer Gordon Holt. Gordon played for Kello Rovers in the Scottish Junior ranks before turning professional when he played for Airdrieonians during the 1986–87 season and then for Stranraer during the 1987–88 season.[9]

In 2011, Holt was studying for a career in banking.[3]
