During his time with Newcastle United and Chelsea Gavin enjoyed seasons when he was the top scorer. He famously scored both goals home and away for Chelsea in 1-0 victories over Manchester United. In total he scored more than 100 goals in over 540 league appearances.
After retiring he worked with the BBC as a football pundit as well as hosting ‘Songs of Praise’ before studying theology in Cambridge and Canada. He is at present the Pastor at Calvary Grace Church in Calgary, Canada."Higher Football is an ideal coaching and teaching course for the local church and school wherever located and whatever its size. It can last over an eight week period or form the basis of a week’s clinic or holiday club. Higher Football will enable your church or school to serve families in your community and strengthen relationships. I am pleased to give my support to this ground breaking initiative." Gavin Peacock – former Chelsea, Newcastle United and Queens Park Rangers striker
