Mark McKee Player Profile
Debut: Colchester United (A, 0-4), 08/04/2017
Mark McKee arrived at Stevenage Football Club in summer 2015. The young forward, much like Ben Kennedy and Dale Gorman before him, joined the club from his native Northern Ireland. He signed for an undisclosed fee from Cliftonville.
It took him just one year to earn a professional deal at the Lamex. The forward made a lasting impression during a number of pre-season friendlies prior to the 2016-7 League Two campaign; stepping up from Boro’s youth team. And McKee has also turned out for his country at U19 level.
It’s fair to say 2017-8 was a breakthrough season for him, though. While Boro’ didn’t make a great impression overall, McKee stood out. He made the switch from up front to midfield, and was a star performer. Much more was to be expected from him as a result.
For some reason, that step up didn’t happen. We’re sure there are people who know more than we do (and more than we care to) on the matter. The fact is, however, that McKee’s time at the club came to an end in summer 2019. It was a bit of a surprise, and not much of a surprise. He’d spent a large chunk of the season absent, but then came back to make a few cameos towards the end of season.
Wherever his career takes him, we wish Mark all the best.
