The rapid winger caught the eye after arriving at the club in March following an impressive trial period after a spell in the USA, scoring on his debut in the Kent Senior Cup victory at Ebbsfleet United.

Despite an injury disrupting his run-in, the 30-year old made five league appearances at the back end of the 2022/23 season and is hungry to go into the new campaign with a full pre-season behind him.

The Eltham-born 30-year old has gained plenty of experience playing all over the world since going to the USA as a youngster, going through the college soccer system, representing Jackson Jets, Saginaw Valley State Cardinals before turning pro with Chicago Inferno in 2013.

Balarabe moved back to Europe with AO Levante in Greece before joining Iraklis Psachna and then Niki Volos, prior to a move to the Portuguese second tier with Gil Vicente in 2016.

A move to Turkey followed, joining Torbalispor and Salihli Belediyespor before representing Mağusa Türk Gücü in Cyprus and Urraca in Spain, as well as Ibiza Islas Pitiusas. Before finally moving back to the UK with Hemel Hempstead Town in 2020.

Short spells at Dulwich Hamlet and Cray Wanderers followed before returning to Turkey with Mağusa Türk Gücü for the 2021/22 campaign.

Balarabe returned to the USA to join USL team Birmingham Legion, returning to London at the turn of the year and joining the Wings for the run-in in March 2023.
