Playing career[edit]

Ramsay began his career with Falkirk in 1997.[1] He made his first team debut during the 2004–05 season, making three appearances in the club's First Division championship winning campaign.[1][2] He signed a contract extension in June 2005 as the club prepared for their return to the Scottish Premier League.[3]

In January 2006, Ramsay joined Berwick Rangers until the end of the season.[4] He appeared in 9 league matches and 12 in all competitions, including a 1–0 win on aggregate against Stenhousemuir in the Second Division play-offs.[5] Ramsay was released from his contract by Falkirk in May 2006.[6] He then moved into junior football, signing for Dundonald Bluebell alongside Martin Grehan and Paul McQuade.[1][2] He helped the club win the East Region Central Division of the Scottish Junior Football Association before joining Second Division club Cowdenbeath in November 2007.[7] "Mark is a very good player," said manager Brian Welsh. "He has good pace with quick feet and will offer us something a bit different from the midfield."[7] In August 2013, Ramsay retired from senior football.[8] Not known for his penalty prowess, he's continued the trend by missing a penalty at Humberg at the start of the 17/18 season for the mighty Primrose. Never before has a penalty been compared to tumbleweed.....
