Arthur Graham Player Profile
Glaswegian Arthur Graham arrived at Aberdeen from Cambuslang Juniors at the start of the 1969–70 season and the bandy legged outside left was soon included in the first team. A tremendously talented teenager, the Rick Wakeman look alike was a part of the Aberdeen side that beat Celtic 3–1 in the 1970 Scottish FA Cup Final.
Arthur Graham made over 200 appearances for Aberdeen before the wily winger decided to move to Leeds United for a transfer fee of £125,000 in the summer of 1977. At Elland Road, the flankman managed to notch up a total of 47 goals in 260 first team appearances for The Peacocks during his six seasons at the West Yorkshire club. As Leeds United were relegated to the Second Division in 1982 and failed to regain their status in the First Division the following season, Graham was sold to Manchester United for £50,000 in August 1983. Despite of the fact that he spent just two seasons at the club, he enjoyed a short but successful spell under manager Ron Atkinson. A consistent and hard working performer, he made 37 league outings for Manchester United before he finally finished a fine footballing career with Bradford City in 1987. A Scotland international, Arthur Graham gained eleven full caps after making his debut against East Germany in 1977.
