He made his debut for Lincoln City in a 2-0 loss to Torquay United August 14, 2010. McCallum scored his first goal for Lincoln on January 15, 2011, in a 2–1 home loss to Wycombe Wanderers. About three weeks later Gavin scored his second league goal of the season as well as the winning goal in a tight match versus Bradford City on February 1, 2011.

He then went on to score in a 2–1 away loss to Port Vale.

McCallum returned to Woking for pre-season training, with manager Garry Hill commenting “We told him ‘you’re not fit enough, you have talent but for that to come out you will have to go away, come back pre-season and show what you can do.’" Having impressed Hill, he agreed a further one year contract with The Cards However, in October, he was transfer listed along with Lee Sawyer with manager Garry Hill stating that the duo did not feature in his future plans after being disappointed with their attitude. On Monday 9 December 2013, Woking announced that he'd been released from his contract in order to join former club Sutton United, McCallum having made his second debut for The Us the previous Saturday in the 3-2 Football Conference South home victory over Maidenhead United. In need of regular matches to improve his fitness, McCallum joined Tonbridge Angels on an initial one-month loan debuting in the club's 3-1 Football Conference South defeat at Dover Athletic on 26 December 2013. Although the club were keen to extend the loan, he was recalled to Sutton United. In June 2014 he joined Eastbourne Borough.
