Greer's spell playing in The Football League in England in late 1989 with Chester was short-lived. In four first–team games (two in cup football) he failed to find the net for Chester and scored an own–goal in a 2–0 defeat to Shrewsbury Town. He was not awarded a long–term contract.[1]

In 1995, Greer was capped three times for the Hong Kong national football team.[2] He also played briefly for the Hong Kong national cricket team, representing Hong Kong in matches against Singapore and Thailand at the 1993 Tuanku Ja'afar Cup. He had earlier played that sport at under-19 level for Western Australia.[3]
