Graeme Welch (born 21 March 1972) is an English cricket player and coach born in Durham. He played for two county teams, Derbyshire and Warwickshire.

Graeme Welch was appointed captain of Derbyshire for the 2006 season following the departure of Luke Sutton to Lancashire. In his Derbyshire career he has taken 50 wickets each season except one where he was injured for most of it, therefore it shows why he has taken 685 wickets at all top cricket levels and has also shown promise with the bat, scoring 7089 runs at all professional levels. When he played for Warwickshire he was part of the famous team including Shaun Pollock, Brian Lara and Dermot Reeve. He left Warwickshire at the end of the 2000 season, and joined Derbyshire for the 2001 campaign. Following six years of service for Derbyshire, Welsh was awarded a benefit year in 2007. However, in June 2007, he was forced to retire from the game due to injury.[1]

Welch joined Essex as their bowling coach for 2008.[2] He rejoined Derbyshire as elite performance director in January 2014, and resigned from the role in June 2016.[3]
