Biography:
A member of Distillery's last championship winning side, Stan Gregg was also involved in further successes and big European matches with the Whites. Capped by Ireland Amateurs in February 1964, that summer he signed for Linfield, but his d├ębut was delayed until September by a wrangle between the clubs over the transfer fee.

Gregg spent five successful years at Windsor Park, featuring in the Linfield side that reached the quarter-finals of the European Cup in 1966/67. By the time he left the Blues in 1969 he had claimed all the domestic honours with the exception of the Irish Cup, having lost in finals with Distillery against Linfield and with Linfield against Glentoran.

After joining Bangor Gregg claimed his second Co. Antrim Shield winner's medal as the Seasiders defeated Ards after a third final replay for their first ever senior trophy success.

Gregg died suddenly in May 2011 although he had been ill for some time.
