London-born keeper who joined Brentford as an apprentice and made four Football League appearances for the Bees during the 1976/77 season.

Graham joined Margate on loan from Brentford in September 1978 and made a one-off appearance in a Southern League match at Dartford on 30.9.78 as a replacement for the injured Steve Bowtell. The Thanet Times said that after "a shaky start" Graham "emerged with credit".

After being released by Brentford in the summer of 1979 Graham joined Wokingham and during the first half of 1980/81 he scored the winner for their reserves in a 2-1 victory at Edgware after swapping places with an outfield player during the match.

In January 1981 Graham moved on to Addlestone & Weybridge and spent the 1981/82 campaign there too. He later had spells with Hillingdon and South Ascot before returning to League football.

Graham made 16 appearances for Aldershot during 1984/85 and the opening weeks of the 1985/86 season before joining Slough on loan in October 1985. In November 1985 he suffered a double fracture of an arm and a broken collar-bone in a game against Sutton. At the time his injuries were thought to be career threatening but fortunately Graham made a full recovery.

He was released by Aldershot at the end of 1985/86 and joined Slough on a permanent basis for the 1986/87 campaign. Graham later became assistant manager at the club before moving into a scouting role for 1990/91.

During the 1991/92 season Graham played for Royston in the Diadora (Isthmian) League and had a spell as the club's joint caretaker manager during the campaign.

He went back to Slough as chief scout for the 1992/93 season.
