He played in 40 games in 1987–88 as Notts missed out on promotion by a single point.

In February 1990 Kevan joined Stoke City under the management of Alan Ball.[1] His debut for Stoke was in the Potteries derby against Port Vale in a 0–0 draw.[1] Stoke were relegated to the Third Division at the end of the season and Kevan found himself out of the team in 1990–91 making eight appearances and spent time out on loan at Maidstone United.[1] New manager Lou Macari moved Kevan into defence in 1991–92 and he played in 57 matches including in the 1992 Football League Trophy Final. He made 16 appearances in 1992–93 as Stoke won promotion back to the second tier.
