Biography:
A winger who could light up matches, Sam McGregor’s game was somewhat hindered by his poor goalscoring record. A regular in the Glentoran forward-line for two seasons, he managed just one goal, the opener in a 4-1 Gold Cup hammering of Distillery in April 1922.

After an incredible season with Glentoran in 1920/21, which brought a League and Cup ‘Double’ and a Co. Antrim Shield success, McGregor was included in the Irish line-up that faced Scotland at Windsor Park. He was one of five debutants as the side lost out 2-0 and was never capped again. Between January and October 1921 he also played three times for the Irish League, finishing on the losing side each time.

In the 1922 close-season McGregor made the short move to Dundela, where he spent a season, before joining Ards for their first season as in the Irish League.
