Born in Whitley Bay, North Tyneside, Peter Ramage grew up in Berwick-upon-Tweed, but aged 12, he moved to the Newcastle area. 

Ramage is the son of Iain Ramage, who is a former semi-professional Rugby Union player and international RFU referee, however, the 37-year-old went down a footballing path. 

The defender joined Newcastle’s academy in 1996, enjoying eight years of his progression at youth level before making his competitive debut for The Magpies in 2005, during a comprehensive 4-0 victory against Olympiacos in the last 16 of the UEFA Cup.

Going on to feature over 50 times in the following three years, Ramage then joined QPR in 2008. Dropping down a division to the Championship, the central defender was a regular first-teamer during his first few years at the club, before dropping down the pecking order ahead of the 2010/11 campaign.

Which non-league club did Palace sign Ian Wright from?

Embarking on loan spells with Crystal Palace and Birmingham City during his time with The R’s, Ramage eventually joined the former on a permanent deal just before the 2012/13 campaign. 

Playing 40 times during Palace’s promotion-winning Championship campaign, Ramage was unable to pave a way in the side’s Premier League starting XI the following season, with loan spells to Barnsley in two successive seasons occurring next.

After that, he then went onto a short spell in the Indian Super League with Kerala Blasters, before joining Coventry City and then Leyton Orient.

In 2016, Ramage headed for the USA, enjoying short spells with Arizona United and Phoenix Rising.

During his time with Palace, Ramage started preparing for life after his playing career by taking up his coaching badges.

After announcing his retirement from playing, the former defender was handed the role of assistant coach at Phoenix Rising.

Returning to England last summer, Ramage has gone back to the club where it all started. The 37-year-old joined Newcastle as an assistant coach in the U23s squad – a role he still finds himself in now.
