Biography[edit]

Playing career[edit]

Greygoose began his long football career at Cambridge United, where he signed a professional contract in November 1982, and made his debut during the 1983-84 season. In total, he played 26 league games for Cambridge, but was mostly the team's reserve goalkeeper, behind Malcolm Webster and later Keith Branagan. Spells at Leyton Orient and Crystal Palace followed, before signing for Crewe in August 1987, where he spent six seasons as first-choice goalkeeper.

In 1993, Greygoose was released by Crewe, and joined Conference side Northwich Victoria where he spent another six seasons before leaving the Vics at the end of the 1998-99 season. He has since played for a number of non-league clubs, including Altrincham, Chester City, Stevenage Borough, AFC Sudbury and Soham Town Rangers. Greygoose joined Bury Town during the 2006-07 season, and played for the club until retiring in July 2009.[1]

Coaching career[edit]

Greygoose also worked as a goalkeeping coach at Bury Town, and was joint manager of Team Bury from 2009 until July 2010, when he joined Histon as goalkeeping coach.[2] In June 2012 he joined Kettering Town as assistant manager to John Beck and goalkeeping coach.[3] He joined Haverhill Rovers as manager in May 2013, but left in August 2014.[4] In 2014 he was appointed manager of Mildenhall Town.[5]
