Martin Grehan (born 9 October 1984) is a Scottish footballer who is currently without a club after being released by Scottish League One side Stenhousemuir.[1]

Career[edit]

Grehan was born in Glenrothes. After a spell in the East Fife Youth system, Grehan spent some time in the Amateurs with Fife side Kettle United. During his time at United he played with the Scotland Amateur Team. Grehan then joined Scottish Premier League club Motherwell from junior team Dundonald Bluebell in January 2008.[2] He became the first junior player to join the club since legend Dougie Arnott back in the late 1980s.[citation needed] Soon after, Grehan went on a month's loan to Scottish Football League Third Division club Forfar Athletic, and made an immediate impact by scoring on his debut.[3]

Grehan was released by Motherwell and then signed for Scottish Second Division club Stirling Albion in the summer of 2008.[4]

Grehan was unveiled by manager Ian McCall on 29 January 2010 as a Partick Thistle player having signed for an undisclosed fee.[citation needed] He scored his first Thistle goal to give The Jags a 2–1 victory, away to Ross County, during the second last match of the 2009/2010 season.[citation needed]

After his spell at Thistle, Grehan moved to Stranraer. Grehan went on to play 26 games for Stranraer, scoring 5 goals, as the club reached the end of season play-offs, losing in the final against Albion Rovers.[5] Grehan signed for Alloa Athletic in the 2012 summer transfer window.[6] However, after only one season at Alloa, he was released by Paul Hartley in May 2013.[7] Grehan then returned to Stranraer for the 2013–14 season[8] in June 2013.
