Cory Gregson Biography

Thursday, 4 October 2018
Delisted Cory Gregson hasn't given up hope of resurrecting his 39-game AFL career.

"A couple have rang Tim, my manager, and I think maybe one or two have called Wellsy as well," Gregson said.

"It's positive signs at the moment, but it's still very early."

He had surgery in July to insert a screw into his navicular bone to deal with a stress fracture, and has returned to running with the assistance of an anti-gravity machine.

Gregson said he had problems after his first couple of surgeries due to having the wrong screws inserted into the bone.

"The first two for mine were just the wrong screws put in my navicular," he said.

"They were a tad too big, which caused the bone to crack again and needed to have the next two surgeries."

Tuesday, 11 September 2018
Stewart Crameri, Aaron Black, Ryan Gardner, Cory Gregson, Matthew Hayball and Timm House are delisted by Geelong.

"We sincerely thank all six players for their service to the club, whether it be over a short or a long period, these players have all made a contribution to Geelong as footballers and as quality people," Cats head of football Simon Lloyd said.

"The club wishes them all the best as they embark on their future endeavours."

Monday, 16 July 2018
Cory Gregson will miss the rest of the 2018 season after undergoing his fourth round of surgery on his troublesome left foot to fix a stress fracture.

"He has had surgery on his foot again after missing many years of footy," Cats coach Chris Scott said.

"You could make a strong argument that navicular stress fractures are a more serious injury than an ACL."

Friday, 26 January 2018
Cory Gregson is targeting a return to the field in 2018 as he nears the completion of his recovery from a navicular bone stress fracture suffered in 2016.

"(My goal is) pretty much just to play as many games as possible, whether all of them are in the VFL or just a handful in the AFL or whatnot," Gregson said.

"But pretty much just to play as much football and have no issues with the foot."

Wednesday, 21 June 2017
Geelong is confident Cory Gregson will overcome his foot injury and return to the AFL in 2018.

"The feedback from the surgeon most recently has been that what was a 12-week recovery is more like an eight week [recovery] now so he has got some good news, which he needed because he had a series of unfortunate events with that foot but he has stayed really positive," Scott said.

Gregson played 20 games in his first season but has not played since round 14, 2016 having battled to overcome injury stalling his career on 29 games.

"It has been a complicated and drawn out process but the feedback is still unequivocal that once this acute issue has heeled, he won't have ongoing trouble with it," Scott said.

"We're really confident he will be an AFL player for us next year."

Wednesday, 14 June 2017
Cory Gregson is set to miss the rest of the season due to a navicular injury which has been failing to heal.

The small forward set for another six weeks in a moonboot before he can run again in around three months.

Friday, 20 January 2017
Cory Gregson will miss the start of the home and away season after suffering a setback with his troublesome foot.

Gregson underwent surgery this week to remove a screw that started causing him discomfort over the Christmas break and he won't return to light training for at least 10 weeks.

"Cory’s recovery has been steady, but these types of injuries take time to heal and fully recover," general manager of football Steve Hocking said.

"Unfortunately Cory has been experiencing some pain and surgery was the preferred option to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.

"We expect Cory to return to light training duties in around 10 weeks."

Wednesday, 20 July 2016
Geelong has ruled out young forward Cory Gregson for the rest of the season after he was diagnosed with a stress fracture in his foot.

"Cory suffered slight pain that progressed and he was immediately sent for scans," Cats' football manager Steve Hocking said.

"The scans revealed the stress fracture. Normally the recovery period for an injury like this is 8-10 weeks."

Cory Gregson is named the round six NAB AFL Rising Star nominee after tallying three goals, 18 disposals and four tackles against Collingwood.

It was just the speedster's sixth game at the elite level, where he has settled into Geelong's line-up as a hard-working small forward after being taken at pick 47 in last year's draft.

Friday, 27 March 2015
Geelong extends the contracts of youngsters Nakia Cockatoo and Cory Gregson for a further year, tying them to the club until the end of 2017.

"Both boys have managed to impress through their skill and personal values in their short time here," Geelong's general manager of football, Steve Hocking, said.

"The signing of these two young talents has the future looking even more positive."

Friday, 28 November 2014
Geelong select Cory Gregson with pick No.47 at the 2014 NAB AFL Draft.

"He played really well for South Australia this year in their championship-winning team as well as playing senior footy at Glenelg," Geelong recruiting manager Stephen Wells said.

"He is a smaller player but he runs and carries the ball well, kicks goals and has an energy about him on the field. He had a good year."
