Real LifeEdit

A childhood Burnley fan, he started his footballing career across the River Mersey as a trainee with Tranmere Rovers. Having made 109 appearances for them, with loan deals at Bury and Wigan Athletic along the way, he was released on a free transfer to Stockport County for the beginning of the 1998–99 season, and quickly arrived at Turf Moor around Christmas in 1998 when signed by the colourful manager Stan Ternent, following a falling-out with then Stockport manager, Gary Megson.

Once described by Ternent as a Premiership-standard player, his inability to hold down a regular position either as a left-winger, left-sided or central defender, or striker, has seen him play mostly in the lower leagues. This coupled with a self-confessed lack of confidence has meant that the player has struggled to impress sections of the fans, even though he has played more than 200 games for the club. His unpopularity with some supporters has however been balanced with him becoming something of a cult figure, earning him regular chants of "Graham di Branchio," (in reference to the football chant given to Italian footballer Paolo Di Canio), in an effort to boost his confidence and let his more prominent abilities such as pace and height come to the fore.

The 2005–06 season held even more promise for the player after his hard work and commitment paid off after he was offered a new one year extension to his current deal. Although he only scored two goals he played a large role in many victories due to his skill and crossing abilities. The 2006–07 was widely expected to be his last with Burnley and he spent it as a little-used substitute or squad player.

On 7 May 2007, 1,809 fans turned out at Turf Moor to say goodbye to the versatile player when the current Burnley side played a 'Branch XI'. Although no official announcement had been made by that stage, Branch's departure had been confirmed by Steve Cotterill in interviews leading up to this testimonial match. His departure was confirmed on 8 May 2007.

In March 2010 he was forced to retire from football, after suffering a serious eye injury whilst playing for Colwyn Bay [1]

He is still involved in football as a coach for West Kirby Panthers, a local junior football club near his home on the Wirral.
