Graham began his career at Maryland Boys, also playing with Home Farm before making the move to England where he played for Barnsley. He also played for SPL side Dundee United before returning to Ireland to sign for St Patrick's Athletic in 2003.

Later in 2003 Graham signed for Longford Town where he spent two seasons, winning two FAI Cup winners medals, along with a League Cup medal for good measure.

In 2005 Graham joined Drogheda United where he would win his third successive FAI Cup winners medal as the Drogs beat Cork City 2-0 in the final. He also won a League title at United Park when Paul Doolin's side won the club's only ever League crown in 2007.

In December 2008 Graham returned to Scotland to sign for St Johnstone. He spent three years at the Perth club but injury disrupted his time there and he didn't appear at all in the first half of the 2011/12 season. In January 2012 his contract was terminated and Graham came back to Ireland where he signed with Stephen Kenny at Shamrock Rovers. It was a difficult year for the Hoops and Graham made just 9 league appearances before leaving the club at the end of the season.

In January 2013 Graham signed for Alan Matthews at Shelbourne and made 22 league appearances in a season that saw the Reds relegated to the First Division.
