RUFC - Ref Watch v Stevenage
Graham started refereeing at the age of fifteen reaching the National List of Assistant Referees in 2001. Four years later he was promoted to the List of Panel referees and in 2007 to the National List of Referees.
In the 2008/9 season Graham was in charge of three Millers' games. The first was at Bournemouth in October when the game ended nil-nil. The next game was the following month at St James Park, Exeter when Ben Watson put the home side up just before half-time and on sixty-six minutes Reuben Reid scored a penalty to give the Millers a point. That evening, Drewe Broughton, Marc Josesph and Ian Sharps were shown yellow cards. Then Graham came to Don Valley to officiate in the derby between the Millers and Chesterfield. The Millers were three-nil winners that day with Reid scoring two goals and Pablo Mills getting a third seven minutes before the final whistle. The Spireites had Drew Talbot sent off on seventy-nine minutes when he ploughed into the back of Dale Tonge, receiving his second yellow of the night. Also booked were Mark Hudson and Dale Tonge from the Millers.
So far this season, Graham has been in charge of six games giving out eighteen yellow cards and no reds.
