Born in Billingham, Stockton on Tees and based in Bracknell, McCreesh had a moderately successful amateur career before turning professional, winning three Home Counties ABA title between 1989 and 1991, and reaching the ABA final only to be beaten by Joe Calzaghe. In 1990 his ABA quarter final against Robert McCracken in Birmingham ended prematurely when he was disqualified for leaving the ring to join in a brawl that had started among the two fighters' families.McCreesh made his professional debut in February 1994, beating fellow debutante Tony Walton on points. After winning his first seven fights he beat Clay O'Shea in January 1995 to take the vacant BBBofC Southern Area light middleweight title. He suffered his first professional defeat in his next fight two months later, retiring in the fifth round against Dennis Berry after suffering a broken hand. Further losses (both via disqualification) followed to Michael Smyth and Steve Goodwin, before he returned to winning ways in March 1996 with a points win over Peter Varnavas. A run of eight straight wins, including a second round knockout of former World lightweight champion Dingaan Thobela, was ended by defeat to Peter Malinga in January 1997.
