Derry pick up another player!

After it not working out in Scotland Stewart Greacen has opted for the Airtricty League 2011 with Derry City. He had his best days at Greenock Morton where he played 220 games for them and scoring just 18 goals. No knowledgeable of who he is? Well, He began his senior career at now defunct Airdrieonians   and from there he moved to Livingston FC. Livingston then sent him on loan to Queen of the South FC and Greenock Morton , where he played in the team that was relegated from the Scottish Second Division   in the 2001-02 season. Livingston released Greacen in 2003 and he was immediately signed by Forfar Athletic  . He played the second half of the 02-03 season season at Forfar on a short-term contract. At the end of the season Forfar offered Greacen a long term deal which he rejected in favour of a deal at Morton. The main reason for this was that Morton offered a full-time contract in comparison to Forfar's part time contract.
Greacen plays at centre back in the Morton defence. He is a tall commanding defender with a strong physical presence. He is good in the air and this helps in both an attacking and defensive way as he often scores from headers at set pieces. At 24 years old, Greacen became Greenock Morton's captain.
In May 2008, it was announced that Greacen had rejected a new contract from Morton and was being tracked by rival Scottish First Divison sides Dunfermline Athletic, Queen of the South and Livingston.
Greacen was Morton's Player of the Year for 2008–2009.
On 22 December 2010, Greacen was released by Morton after nearly 250 appearances over two spells from the club.
He is currently on trial at Dundee, where he will be eligible to play in a maximum of three league games - he however cannot be signed due to their current transfer embargo. But then opted out of that and has signed now for Northern Irish team Derry City FC who will take their place in the Airtricty League 2011 season.
