Bio:

Graham has spent his career so far entirely in Scotland, mostly in leagues below the SPL. He started his career as a striker for Stenhousemuir in 2001, for whom he scored 5 goals in 53 league appearances. He moved to Stanraer where he was much more prolific, scoring 33 goals in 52 appearances (a strike rate better than a goal every other game). From there he went to ambitious Gretna and then to Hamilton Academical on loan before making this move permanent in 2007.
 
After a successful season with the Accies, which saw him help the club win promotion to the Scottish Premier League, Graham was awarded a new two-year contract. In the January transfer window of 2009, Graham moved to Dunfermline Athletic.
 
Now he answers five questions on his youth career for YFS...
 


1. Which clubs did you play for in your youth career?
Denny BC, Riverside and Gairdoch United.
 
2. Who were the best players you played with and against during your youth career?
That's a tough one, there were lots of boys who went pro youth etc but never managed to have that bit of luck and make the grade. One player that sticks out was Dennis Haggart, goal machine!
 
3. Who were your role models as a young player?
I'd say my dad first of all, professional player wise, Alan Shearer was my hero growing up.
 
4. Who was your favourite coach at youth level?
My Denny manager Norrie Reid was my fave of my youth team managers. I was lucky enough to get the chance to train with some senior clubs whilst playing youth football and I'd say Peter Houston's training at falkirk was the most enjoyable. 
 
5. If you had one piece of advice to today’s generation of youth football players, what would it be?
Always make sure your at a club were you find training and playing enjoyable, that way everyone will see the best of you. And never ever give up on your dream! Its the greatest job you could ever have!
