.....to the position of assistant-manager at Evo-Stik Northern Premier League Premier Division club Eastwood Town.
Ramshaw said: "When you have good staff at a football club there is no point in looking outside of the club for appointments.
“Kelkie is not only an outstanding coach he is also someone the players like, respect and are comfortable with. Keeping everything 'in house' and promoting him to the position of assistant-manager was a natural course of events.
“Throughout last year in what proved to be probably the most difficult of my career, Kelkie stood shoulder-to-shoulder with Coops and me - never waivering in his loyalty or commitment. People like that are a rare breed and the type I want around me in the future."
Ramshaw also intimated that he would be looking to bring in a third person to compliment the management team. "Obviously I have someone in mind but need assurances on the finances relating to an appointment before I make one," said the Badgers` boss.
As the new season rapidly approaches Ramshaw has been delighted with the attitude shown by players in pre-season training. "They are working hard and despite the demands placed on them are enjoying themselves. As a group they are already starting to bond - as I would expect because they have all been 'hand-picked'. There will be no 'attitudes' or 'bad apples' this year. This is MY team and every one of them knows what I require in terms of attitude and work ethic."
The latest new Badger is former Derby County and Motherwell striker Anthony Griffiths Jnr., who joins from Evo-stik Southern Premier side Barwell.
The pacey front man completes Ramshaw's compliment of strikers.
