Denzel Gerrar joined Walton Casuals in September 2016, making his debut the same day in a 3-2 FA Cup First Qualifying Round win over Greenwich Borough.
Having featured for European sides La Manga and Rio Maior as a teenager, he progressed through the ranks at Millwall to become the second choice goalkeeper throughout the 2014-15 season. Awarded the number 13 jersey, Gerrar was regularly named on the bench but was unable to make a first-team appearance.
Later enjoying a month-long loan at Lewes during his time with the Lions, he joined non-league outfit Histon following his release. In March 2016, he was picked up by National League South champions Sutton United to act as back-up to first choice keeper Ross Worner.
Gerrar became the first choice goalkeeper in October 2016, and recorded his first clean sheet in just his second appearance – a 1-0 league victory against Greenwich Borough.
The goalkeeper scored his first goal for the club with a cameo outfield appearance in January 2017. Forced off the bench to replace Roscoe D’Sane in extra-time of the 3-2 victory over British Airways, Gerrar smashed home the winning goal to put his side into the quarter-final.
