Ken McGregor arrived at West Lakes with an impressive junior record; the Henley High product was chosen in the Australian under-17 team in 1997 which toured Ireland. On the same day the Crows won the 1997 premiership, McGregor was playing for the Eagles in the SANFL under-19 grand final at AAMI Stadium. Adelaide selected him with pick No. 75 in the 1998 AFL draft. He debuted in 1999.
He played most of his early games as a key forward before being used in defence in 2001. McGregor’s versatility at both ends of the ground saw him become a regular player in the best-22 and Brisbane’s All Australian forward, Jonathon Brown, even described him as one of his toughest opponents.
From 2007, an Achilles injury and quad strain saw him in and out of the side, and after the 2008 season he was delisted having becoming the 11th Crow to reach 150 games.
He continued to play for his SANFL club Woodville-West Torrens before becoming coach of Port Adelaide and then North Adelaide in the SANFL.
