|Craig joined the Hawks at the start of March 2006 having been released by Exeter City, for whom he signed two weeks into the season from Conference South rivals Sutton United. He was previously with Ryman League side Epsom and Ewell, the then 18 year old taking the club’s golden boot in his debut season in 2003/04. From there he joined Sutton in the summer of 2004, scoring on his debut in a friendly against Horley Town.
During the 2004/05 season he became a popular figure at Sutton, eventually sharing the golden boot, and maintained links with the Us in October 2005 when he returned to the side on loan from Exeter, eventually leaving with a tally of 18 goals from 59 appearances.
Craig left the Hawks in July 2007 to re-sign for Sutton United, but became Shaun Gale’s first signing as manager in October, having impressed previously with his ability to bring a fast pace to the Hawks’ front line.
