Biography

Born and raised in Liverpool, Craig was a product of the Tranmere Rovers youth set-up, signing his first professional contract in April 2006. He went on to play almost 100 times for the Prenton Park team before a move to Carlisle United in the summer of 2010 saw the striker win the Johnstone's Paint Trophy at Wembley towards the end of that season.

After a loan move to Morecambe in March 2012, he signed for Rochdale at the start of the following season, but was again out on loan, firstly with Chester, and then with League of Ireland side Limerick, where he eventually signed a contract in July 2013. A short spell with Nuneaton followed, before he travelled north to sign for Ross County in January 2015.

The Englishman enjoyed three seasons in Dingwall where he played over 100 times scoring 29 goals. In June 2018 he became manager Csaba László's fourth signing of the summer as the club rebuilt the side in an attempt at winning promotion to the Premiership, signing a three year contract.

Timeline

  • Date of Birth

    Craig was born on this date in Liverpool, England.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Born and raised in Liverpool, Craig was a product of the Tranmere Rovers youth set-up, signing his first professional contract in April 2006. He went on to play almost 100 times for the Prenton Park team before a move to Carlisle United in the summer of 2010 saw the striker win the Johnstone's Paint Trophy at Wembley towards the end of that season.

  • United's first league game of the 2018/19 season ended in defeat as they lost to Dunfermline Athletic for the first time since August 2011.

  • United got their third consecutive win with a convincing 3-1 victory over Partick Thistle at Tannadice.

  • United climbed to third place in the Scottish Championship with a comfortable 2-0 win over struggling Falkirk at the Falkirk Stadium. Despite the lackadaisical performance in the previous week’s game against Morton, as well as the rumours about his own job security, manager Csaba Laszlo resisted the temptation to make wholesale changes. Only two changes were made to his starting eleven from that Morton game. Paul McMullan made his first league start of the season, and Jamie Robson also returned. Callum Booth and Adam Barton were dropped to the bench. Fraser Fyvie, perhaps with Falkirk’s artificial surface in mind, dropped out of the squad altogether although Billy King, who was also returning from injury, was named among the substitutes.

  • Robbie Neilson’s tenure as Dundee United head coach began in the best possible way with a 2-1 victory over Partick Thistle at Firhill. The home side were without a manager after former United defender Alan Archibald’s sacking the previous week, with Gerry Britton in temporary charge for this game. Coincidentally, Archibald was sacked after a home defeat against Ross County, as Csaba Laszlo had been seven days earlier.
