Wide midfielder Olley signed for City in 2015, but he didn’t make his senior debut until August 2016 when he started a League Cup tie at Exeter City. He made one further League Cup appearance the following season before his release in May 2018.
Olley was a junior at Newcastle United and had recently been released by the Magpies when City signed him from non-League South Shields.
On his release from the Tigers Greg returned to the North East and joined Conference National title challengers Gateshead. He had an impressive first season at Gateshead, scoring 8 goals in 41 starts, and scored another 4 goals in the foreshortened 2019/20 season. He was retained by Gateshead for the 2020/21 season and in May 2021 he signed up for a fourth season at the International Stadium.
In March 2020 Olley was called up to the England C squad, players drawn from the semi-professional game, however the planned C international against Wales was cancelled due to the outbreak of COVID19.
