During his 215-game career with the Double Blues he kicked 607 goals, led their goal-kicking on five occasions and played in their 1967, 1969 and 1970 premiership sides. Greenslade kicked nine of Sturt's 24 goals in the 1969 Grand Final win over Glenelg. Later in his career he moved to full-back and played his final three seasons for Glenelg. In 1981, his final season, he was captain and best & fairest for the Glenelg reserves premiership side.
His two VFL games came whilst he was on National Service training in Melbourne. Kicking one goal against the Saints on debut, the next week he and fellow Sturt footballer and conscript, Michael Nunan, played for Richmond against South Melbourne and Greenslade kicked six goals. He and Nunan then returned to Sturt. In just his two games at Richmond, Greenslade was nominated for "Mark of the Century" during Richmond's century year of VFL/AFL competition.
