Graham Hyde is a midfielder who spent 18 months as a Rovers player, from late in 2002 until the summer of 2004. He joined Rovers with a wealth of top flight experience, gained while at Sheffield Wednesday, and was a former FA Cup finalist. He played in 58 league games, four of those from the bench, and scored three goals for the Pirates. He also played in one Football League Trophy and three FA Cup games without scoring.

Graham ended his Football League career with Rovers, and on his release in 2004 he dropped down to the Conference to play for Hereford United.


Graham was originally from Doncaster, and began his footballing career as a trainee with Sheffield Wednesday, which is where he spent the majority of his professional career. He joined the pro ranks at the club in 1988 at the age of 18, and spent a further eleven years with the Yorkshire club before finally leaving to join Birmingham City in 1999. He played 174 league games for the Owls, and scored eleven goals. In the FA Cup he made eighteen appearances for them, including the final and final replay against Arsenal in 1993, and he made a further 18 appearances in the League Cup.

On joining Birmingham, Graham found himself on the fringes of the first team, making 51 league appearances in just under four years. During his time at St Andrews he was loaned out to Chesterfield and Peterborough United, and after the Midlanders were promoted to the Premier League in 2002 he was surplus to requirements and was allowed to join Rovers on a free transfer in November that year.

After leaving Rovers he spent a year with Hereford United in the Conference, before moving on to Worcester City, Hednesford Town and Halesowen Town. In 2007 Hyde moved to Fleet Town, where he linked up with his former Wednesday team mate Andy Sinton, who was manager of the club.

He spent most of the 2011–12 season as manager of Redditch United, and although he avoided relegation from the Southern League Premier Division, finishing 15th in the table, he resigned at the end of the campaign.
