Graham joined Barnsley from non-league Hall Green in 1953, while still working as a miner at Haigh Colliery. He stayed with Barnsley for several seasons, but left when the club was relegated at the end of the 1958–59 season. After a brief spell at Bristol City, he moved to Leyton Orient for £8000 on 20 June 1960.
At Orient, Graham was part of the team that gained promotion to the First Division in 1961–62, scoring both goals in the 2–0 win over Bury that sent them up on the last day of the season. He was joint top scorer with Dave Dunmore in Orient's single season in the top flight, scoring a hat-trick in the 9–2 thrashing of Chester in the League Cup. However, he left Orient at the end of that season to join Queens Park Rangers. Only staying for one season, he returned to Barnsley before moving back into non-league football.
