Kevin signed professional terms with Ipswich in July 1981 and was the PFA Young Player of the Year in 1973/74. He was also voted Ipswich's Player of the Year twice. A central defender, he formed a solid partnership with Allan Hunter helping the Portman Road side to the FA Cup in 1978. Whilst at Ipswich, Kevin was capped nine times for England. He scored 24 goals in 228 Division One games before a knee injury halted his playing career. He attempted to make comebacks with Colchester and Middlesbrough but now works in the licensed trade.

In October 2008, Kevin was arrested on suspician of theft after £200 disappeared from a friend's house. He was released on police bail following the incident and Suffolk police have now confirmed that they will take no action. Beattie said: “I’m glad it’s all over. This has been a stressful few weeks, not just for me, but my wife and family. It was all a huge misunderstanding. I’m delighted to have my name cleared.” Shortly afterwards on November 22nd, he was admitted to hospital suffering from paancreatitis
