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 and toured Ireland for a month. 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.
Fourteen months later Adelaide had won another premiership and 17-year-old McGregor was moving into the No. 16 locker, drafted with pick No. 75. He debuted in 1999 and 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 top forward, Jonathon Brown, even described him as one of his toughest opponents. From 2007, an Achilles injury and quad strain saw him bounce in and out of the side, and after 2008 he was delisted despite 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.
