A 36 year old striker, Gavin joined The Millers during the 2018/19 season and was instrumental in the Club’s success – scoring 17 goals in just 22 appearances, including our goal in the FA Vase Final at Wembley and helping the club to win the SCEFL championship and with it promotion to the Isthmian League.
After coming through the Gillingham youth set-up, Gavin has had a distinguished career, playing in the Football League for Brentford, Yeovil Town, Dagenham & Redbridge, Gillingham, Southend United, Port Vale and Crawley Town. He latterly moved on to Dulwich Hamlet, helping the Club secure promotion to the National League South in 2017/18.

Hard working “strongman” Babs includes Charlton Athletic, Fulham and Tilbury among his previous Clubs. The 28 year old striker scored 10 goals in 36 appearances for The Millers last season, netting a brace in our crucial win against Ashford United in January. Was awarded Player’s and Supporter’s Player of the Year in 2019/20. Played in the FA Vase Final at Wembley against Chertsey Town in 2019 and was an integral part of the club's FA Vase run, as well as guiding the Millers to the SCEFL championship in season 2018/19 and with it promotion to the Isthmian League. Scored 24 goals in 47 appearances that season.

Photos from that magic moment in the 76th minute on the 30th April 2019 at Salters Lane v Canterbury City when Babalola put the Millers in front and on their way to winning the SCEFL Premier Division title. Nothing less than a win that day would do.
