Kevin Graham

Former non league footballer and Guernsey national team manager, still a fan of the beautiful game.

Born in the north east of England before growing up in Guernsey, Graham played for a number of clubs in the upper echelons of the non-league pyramid including Whitby Town, Guiseley AFC and Goole AFC, making over 200 appearances in senior non league football. After returning to the Channel Islands, he captained his boyhood club St Martins AFC and Guernsey's national team before hanging up his boots. He then embarked on a career as a coach, working as part of the Guernsey team's staff at the 2009 Island Games in Aland, nr Sweden, before coaching the newly formed Guernsey Athletics FC later that year. After moving back to the UK in 2010, he regularly scouted for a number of senior non league teams across the north of England. He was appointed to the role of Guernsey's national team manager in February 2012, a role he held until August 2013 after leading Guernsey to two successive Muratti Vase wins. After stepping down from the Guernsey role, Graham went on to work in the UK managing at Humber Premier League side Pocklington Town and Evo-Stik North side Goole AFC, a team he captained as a player. Now living in Spain, Graham combines coaching with football writing - providing regular pieces for The Non League Paper and The Teeside Gazette.
