Description

Ayr born wing half Johnny Graham had started his professional football career in 1883 with Annbank and while playing for them won a single cap for Scotland when he was selected in a 5-0 win over Ireland at Ballynafeigh Park in Belfast in January 1884. He was one of the many Scottish footballers who joined Preston North End in the mid-1880’s as the Lancashire club assembled a side that was almost unbeatable. Graham was in the Preston side that were 1888 FA Cup Finalists, losing to West Bromwich Albion, and the following season he played for Preston as they did The Double, becoming the inaugural Football League Champions and 1889 FA Cup Winners, beating Wolves 3-0 in the Final. During the 1888-89 season his brother William also played for Preston, but the following season his football career was ended when he suffered a broken collarbone in a match having played 17 games in a season that Preston also won the League Championship. In total he made 44 appearances, excluding appearances prior to the Football League era.
