Biographical Text

Bristolian Graham Withey had played around 70 league games for Bristol Rovers, Coventry and Cardiff when he had a short spell with Exeter City in the late 1980s. After playing in Australia he appeared for several non-league teams in the Bristol area. 

Graham played for Welton Rovers and Weymouth before joining Bristol Rovers from Bath City in August 1982. Netting 10 times in 22 league matches for the Pirates, he moved to Coventry City in August 1983 where he added a further 4 goals from another 22 league appearances. Also spending the 1984 close season playing in Hong Kong, Graham switched to Cardiff City in December 1984 for whom he appeared in 27 league matches (scoring seven goals). He then played for Yeovil Town prior to signing for Bristol City in September 1986 where he played just two league matches before leaving for non-league Cheltenham Town.

Returning to the professional ranks with Exeter City in July 1988, Graham made a promising debut scoring twice in 4-1 home win over Halifax Town in September 1988. But he was soon out of the side, and starting just four more games (with a couple of substitute appearances), Graham’s contract was cancelled by mutual consent in January 1989 following sciatica, knee and ankle problems.

He subsequently played in Australia for Brisbane City before settling back in the Bristol area with Gloucester City, Bath City, Trowbridge Town and Weston-super-Mare.
