David "Davie" Graham (born 2 June 1983 in Stirling, Scotland) is a Scottish footballer, who last played for Greenock Morton in the Scottish Football League First Division.

Career[edit]

During his youth career, David's former teams include Denny BC, Riverside and Gairdoch United.[1]

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 but he did not do as well as he scored just 6 goals in his 68 matches. He then moved 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.[2] In the January transfer window of 2009, Graham moved to Dunfermline Athletic.[3]

Morton[edit]

Graham signed for Greenock Morton in June 2012,[4] and was released in April 2013.[5]

In July 2013, Graham played and scored in a pre-season victory for Crusaders over Lisburn Rangers.[6]

Personal life[edit]

His ex-girlfriend is the Blue Peter presenter Helen Skelton.[7]
