Craig played for Wexford Youths during 2014 and made his first appearance for the club in a Leinster Senior Cup defeat to Athlone Town on 19 February. His league debut came as a late substitute against Shamrock Rovers B on 4 April 2014 and his first goal for the club was the winner against Bray Wanderers in the second round of the 2014 FAI Cup. Craig made 13 league appearances in 2014 before leaving the club at the end of the season.

Craig went on to play for Birr Town and the Defence Forces before returning to League of Ireland football with Athlone Town in June 2016. But his debut for Athlone, against Cobh Ramblers on 24 June, was his one and only appearance for the club.

He returned to Athlone colours at the start of the 2018 season and played with the Midlands club until leaving that summer.
