Calvin Ramsay Ready To Work Hard

17 July 2023

Calvin Ramsay is “ready to work hard” at Preston North End, now that his loan spell from Liverpool has officially started.

The young defender agreed to join PNE over a month ago, but the deal only started on 15th July with the Scot having spent pre-season with his parent club so far.

He’s now joined up with his new teammates at Euxton, and he’s looking forward to getting started in Lancashire.

Calvin said: “It feels really good; it’s a good club.

“I went to the game on Saturday and met all the boys and they all seem like good lads. I just can’t wait to get started.

“To be fair it [the deal] all went quite quickly. I was on holiday and I got a call from my agent and within a few days really I basically signed a contract.

“I was wanting to get out on loan and play games, which for my development was the main thing to try and get as many games as I can.

“To come here, it’s a good league, a good club, and I’m just ready to work hard and try to get in the team.”

The 19-year-old made the move to Anfield last summer from boyhood club Aberdeen, however his first season as a Premier League player didn’t quite go as planned.

Injuries limited his 2022/23 campaign but having gone through his rehabilitation over the summer with Liverpool, Calvin is now not far off being fit and ready to play.

“I’m very close,” he said. “I think I’m almost there. Maybe a week, maybe two, maybe less.

“I don’t know, but I don’t think it’ll be more than two weeks before I’m back out there so I can’t wait.

“I’ve been back for a while now doing individual training. When I was away on holiday I was doing stuff as well.

“I’ve not done much team training but I’ve been working hard with the coach at Liverpool trying to get my fitness and my sharpness back, and I think it’s getting there.

“I’m getting closer by the day so I’m almost ready to go.”

At this stage, it seems unlikely Calvin will be available to feature on Saturday in the pre-season friendly against Aberdeen – the club he grew up playing for.

Whether he’s involved or not, it’ll still be a special occasion for the teenager.

“It’ll be good to see some old faces,” he said. “The manager Barry Robson, I know him very well. He’s a good coach as well.

“It’ll be nice to see some old friends and the manager, so I can’t wait.

“It’ll be good seeing all the fans there and then seeing the Aberdeen fans too. It can’t get much better than that so I’m looking forward to it.”
