Greg began his career at local Cork side Crosshaven AFC before joining the youth set-up at Leeds United in England. He went on to spend a year at Hull City before returning to Ireland in 1998 and signing for Cork City where he spent eight years.

When Greg's first spell at Cork City came to an end at the close of the 2005 season, he went on his way with a League title winners medal as the Rebels clinched the League crown with a 2-0 win over Derry City on the final night of the season. Greg also played in that years FAI Cup final, which the Cork lost 2-0 to Drogheda United.

Greg joined Shelbourne in December 2005 and went on to win another League title in 2006, making 15 league appearances for the Reds that year. In February 2007 he followed manager Pat Fenlon to Derry City, but things did not go well at the Brandywell and in July '07 Greg moved on to Galway United.

Greg made 12 league appearances for the Tribesmen in the latter half of 2007 but at the start of 2008 he was loaned to his former club, Shelbourne. When his loan spell ended on 1 July he signed a permanent deal with Cobh Ramblers, where he remained for the remainder of 2008, making 13 appearances with the Cork club.

At the beginning of 2009 he returned, almost inevitably, to Cork City where he signed for new boss Paul Doolin. It would be a traumatic year, filled with financial uncertainty and though the club finished third in the league, they folded early in 2010.

The club's demise led to the formation of Cork City Foras Co-op, a supporter led initiative, and Greg played with the club in the First Division in 2010, making 27 league appearances. In 2011 'Foras' legally assumed the history of the old Cork City and Greg made another 27 league appearances as he captained the club to the First Division title.

In January 2012 Greg rejected drastically reduced terms at the club and ended his long association with Cork City. He became the manager of Munster Senior League side Carrigaline United at the start of the 2013/14 season.
