Kennedy is one of the most successful U20 products, making 34 appearances overall since debuting in May 2015. The left back played in all four play-off games following a lack of bodies in his position and impressed the Loons faithful in those games.

Kennedy was unfortunate last season due to injury and played just once after January due to the form of fellow left back Chris McLaughlin.

He then signed a one year deal with the Athies in the summer of 2014 when United did not renew his contract and made 38 appearances that term netting on twelve occasions.

Full time football then beckoned once again for Dale and he spent last season with Queen of the South, before signing for St. Mirren in the summer of 2017.
