During his career, he acted as Assistant Referee at the Semi-Finals of both the FA and Football League Cups, and amongst many appointments overseas as a FIFA Assistant Referee, the highlight was the 1992 UEFA Cup Final between Torino and Ajax. In 1999, Kevin was the Fourth Official at the Football League Centenary Challenge Match between Sunderland and Liverpool.

He officiated on 3 occasions at Wembley: 4th Official at the 1989 FA Charity Shield -Arsenal versus Liverpool; Assistant Referee at the 1992 4th Division Play-Off Final - Blackpool versus Scunthorpe United; and the highlight of his domestic career was his appointment to referee the 2000 AutoWindscreen's Shield Final between Stoke City and Bristol City.

Sending off 5 players (a Football League record) during a game between Wigan Athletic and Bristol Rovers - 4 of them from the Bristol team!
