Biography

Midfield veteran who now features in the upper reaches of the all time Aylesbury United appearances list having passed the 350 mark in 2016, Greg is known as 'The Leader' having captained the club in his first spell well over a decade ago, returning for a second stint on the eve of the 2012/13 season after three seasons with Aylesbury FC. His first 200 appearances for the club were amassed over five seasons having joined in 2001 having been spotted playing for Thame United.

His first season saw him play fifty games under manager Cliff Hercules during the club's Ryman League promotion season, as a right-back, including a memorable outing to Port Vale in the FA Cup 1st Round.

Following that point, he perhaps became a victim of his versatility, often being moved around the team. Under Steve Cordery in 2002/03 he was used predominantly as a midfielder, but featured in just about every position going in midfield and defence. Greg even played in goal, having an impressive hour covering for the injured Adam Wheeler.

2003/04 was even less memorable for Greg, as he was once again moved about the team, and struggled with a knee injury for much of the season.

A workaholic, he always gives 100% and fights to the death for the team, and, at the age of 38 still has better fitness levels than many of his younger counterparts! Also capable of scoring, he weighs in with his fair share of goals, with 9 in his first season, and a memorable strike against Braintree in a 2003/04 FA Cup match.

Injury curtailed his appearances in his final season at the club back then, and spells at Oxford City, Banbury United and Aylesbury FC followed.
