Graham George Wilkins (born 28 June 1955 in Hillingdon) is an English former professional footballer who played in the Football League as a full back for Chelsea,[1] Brentford and Southend United.[2]

Wilkins was the son of footballer George Wilkins and the eldest of four Hillingdon-born brothers who played professional football, including the England international Ray Wilkins. He began his career with Chelsea, and made his Football League debut on 26 December 1972, as a 17-year-old, in a 3–0 defeat away to Ipswich Town in the First Division.[3] He played 149 games in all competitions, scoring once,[4] before moving on to Brentford in 1982. A broken leg forced his retirement from the professional game.[5]
