22-year-old adds new offensive threat to Red Wolves roster

Chattanooga Red Wolves SC has signed forward Greg Hurst to its USL League One team. The Stirling, Scotland native will join the club from Stenhousemuir FC and is eligible to play beginning this Saturday against South Georgia Tormenta FC. 

“We are pleased to welcome another quality player to our roster for the remainder of the season,” said Chattanooga Red Wolves SC President and General Manager Sean McDaniel. “Greg provides us with key depth offensively, and we are glad to have him with us for these crucial next eight weeks.” 

At just 18 years old, Hurst went on trial with English Premier League’s Everton FC before signing with Scottish Premiership’s St. Johnstone FC. During his four years at St. Johnstone, Hurst made three first team appearances against Rangers FC, Hearts FC and Aberdeen FC and was a member of the Europa League qualifying squad in 2017. 

In addition, while with St. Johnstone, Hurst was loaned to Berwick Rangers, East Fife and Forfar Athletic, making nearly 50 appearances and notching 11 goals during his loan experiences. 

Most recently, Hurst signed with Scottish League Two’s Stenhousemuir FC for the second half of the club’s season. While there, the 22-year-old made 15 appearances, recording two goals and five assists. 

“I’m delighted to be joining Chattanooga Red Wolves SC for the remainder of the club’s inaugural season,” said Hurst. “The team has displayed strong form thus far, and I can’t wait to hit the ground running and join the fight for the League One Championship.”

The Red Wolves (7-5-7) are set to face South Georgia Tormenta FC (8-4-6) on Saturday, Aug. 10 at Erk Russell Park. The match kicks off at 8 p.m. ET and will be available to view live on ESPN+. The team returns home to host North Texas SC (10-4-4) on Saturday, Aug. 17 at David Stanton Field. For tickets, visit chattredwolves.com/tickets
