Graham Alexander

Where is Graham Alexander now?

One of the very few footballers who have played over 1,000 professional appearances, Graham Alexander hung up his boots in April 2012 after time spent playing for Preston North End.

Alexander was only out of the game for a short time as he was asked back to Preston North End to take the role of head of youth development in June 2012.

This role was to be short lived however as he was offered the manager’s job at Fleetwood Town which he accepted in December 2012.

Despite guiding his Fleetwood team to League One through the play-offs in 2014, Graham Alexander was sacked in September 2015 after a terrible start to the season with only two wins in ten games.

In March 2016 Graham Alexander was back in football when he joined League One side Scunthorpe United as manager.

Alexander’s Scunthorpe side made a dramatic transformation on the pitch winning seven and drawing one of their remaining nine games of the season, narrowly missing out on a play off final place.

A third place finish in 2016/17 preceded a great start to the 2017/18 season but Alexander’s Scunthorpe side endured a run of eight games without a win and he was sacked in March 2018 with his side still in a respectable fifth position.

He wasn’t out of the game for long as he was snapped up by newly promoted National Conference side Salford City and was appointed manager in May 2018.
