Dave Gilroy is a forward who came through the Rovers youth system, progressing to the first team squad in the summer of 2001. He played 18 league games and three cup games while with Rovers, scoring one goal in the FA Cup first round replay against Runcorn FC Halton in 2002 and none in the league.


While with Rovers he had loan spells at Bath City and Forest Green Rovers, before being released in December 2003 to join Weston-super-Mare. From there he moved to Chippenham Town in November 2005, and back to Bath City in 2007. In the summer of 2009 he signed for Newport County, but he failed to establish himself in the team and found himself loaned out to two of his former clubs; Weston-super-Mare, where he scored a hat-trick in his first game, and Bath City.

In the summer of 2010 Dorchester Town made an effort to sign Dave, but he opted to join Woking instead. He was released after just one season, finding himself without a club in 2011. He was snapped up by Chippenham Town that summer for a second spell with them, and just over a year later he moved to Frome Town.
