Graham To Miss US Trip

Graham To Miss US Trip

Owls striker David Graham will miss the club's pre-season tour due to visa restrictions.

Nine years ago, Graham, now 27, committed a minor offence and his police record will mean he will not be eligible to enter the United States.

Paul Sturrock told the club website: 'It's something he did when he was 18 and was a silly boy. There's nothing we can do about it, we can't take a chance on him.'

Sturrock also says that despite missing the trip the former Wigan star will be given the chance to force his way into his plans for next season: 'Everyone has an opportunity to impress me. With Wade Small out, David gives us an option on the right.'

Have you ever been to the US, millers? The list of naughty things on the US visa waiver form is as long as your arm, and if he's got a police conviction for any one of them, no matter how innocuous it may seem, he's not going to get in. I'm not going to speculate what it is here.. he might sue me if I'm wrong :)

I thought it was just his finishing that was criminal last season, still new season, new start, on the bright side he won't have to queue for what feels like forever to get into the usa after answering endless stupid questions, hope KPS makes sure the boys take their aspirin and drink lots of fluids during the flight, following the bbq toejob, we don't want any dvt's to add to our traditional injury probs.
