Patrick Anthony Cregg (born 21 February 1986) is an Irish footballer who plays for Montrose in Scottish League One. Cregg is a midfielder and has previously played for Arsenal, Falkirk, Hibernian, Greenock Morton, St Mirren, Bury, St Johnstone, Shamrock Rovers and St Patrick's Athletic. He also represented the Republic of Ireland at youth international levels.

Career[edit]

Having come through the youth academies at Manchester United and Arsenal,[2] Cregg started his senior career at Arsenal; his first senior appearance was in a 3–1 victory against Everton in the League Cup on 9 November 2004, as an 89th-minute substitute for Arturo Lupoli.[3] In all he made three appearances, all of them being in the League Cup.[4]

Cregg joined Scottish Premier League club Falkirk in January 2006 and made over 100 Scottish Premier League appearances for the club. He was released in the summer of 2009, having made his last appearance for the club in the 2009 Scottish Cup Final.[5]

After his release by Falkirk, Cregg signed for Hibernian.[4][5] Cregg followed manager John Hughes in making that move.[4][5] Cregg left Hibs at the end of the season.[6]

Cregg then played in a reserve team friendly match for Shamrock Rovers against Manchester United.[7] Cregg then played as a trialist for Greenock Morton in a Scottish First Division match against Ross County on 25 September 2010.[8] The Greenock Telegraph reported on 1 October 2010 that Cregg had turned down a contract offer from Morton to sign for their Renfrewshire derby rivals St Mirren.[9] Cregg signed for the Paisley club, agreeing a contract until January 2011.[10]

Cregg signed a one-year contract with Bury in August 2011.[11] In May 2012, Cregg was released by the club after being deemed surplus to requirements.[12]

Cregg played for St Johnstone as a trialist in July 2012 and then agreed a one-year contract with the club.[13]

In August 2014 Cregg signed a contract until the end of the season with League of Ireland side Shamrock Rovers.[14] After two and a half seasons with Rovers, Cregg signed for Dublin rivals St Patrick's Athletic on 22 November 2016 on a one-year deal.[15][16] On 31 January 2017 Cregg made his Pats debut in a 4–0 Leinster Senior Cup win over Bray Wanderers at the Carlisle Grounds.[17] After half a season with Pats' in which he was in and out of the team, Cregg requested to leave and came to a mutual agreement with the club to cancel his contract on the 4th July 2017.

Cregg signed for Forfar Athletic on 13 August 2017.[18] Cregg was released from his contract at Forfar on 31 January 2018

International[edit]

While he was at Arsenal, Cregg became a regular in the Republic of Ireland under-19 team. He later represented the Republic of Ireland national under-21 football team.
