The Argus report said he played as good as Carlton stalwart Charles Coulson on the back line.

Ramsay was not selected in the initial Carlton squad for this game.
This was not unusual, as players had difficultly with work commitments and transport.

He was named in the squad against Port Melbourne, but did not play.

1893 August 14
Ramsay played against Melbourne at the M.C.G.
