Joseph George Baldwin (26 July 1921 – 1976) was an English professional footballer. Born in Islington, he played for Gravesend & Northfleet from 1948 until 1951, when he joined Dartford. Just two months later, however, he was signed by professional club Gillingham of the Football League Third Division South.[1][2] He made his Football League debut against Leyton Orient in October 1951 in place of the injured Jimmy Boswell but had a disastrous match, with one local newspaper commenting that he looked "completely out of his depth" in professional football.[1] He was never chosen for the club's first team again, although he was a regular for the reserves. Nothing is known of his career after he left Priestfield Stadium.[1]
