Owner & Director
Jamie was born and raised in Bath, England where he played professionally in the Football League for a number of clubs, including Yeovil Town and Torquay United. The former FNQ Heat midfielder played alongside and against some greats of the game, notably playing alongside England and Southampton striker Charlie Austin, and playing against Liverpool in 2004 – Harry Kewell included – in a thrilling FA Cup tie with Yeovil. Jamie has also coached the likes of Scott Sinclair (Aston Villa, Manchester City, Swansea and Celtic).
Towards the latter end of his playing career, Jamie made the move across the world to showcase his talents here in Australia. After stints in New South Wales and Victoria, Jamie relocated up north and was instrumental in FNQ Heat’s rise to fame. Prior to JGFA, Jamie was FNQ Heat’s Community Development Officer, delivering junior coaching across clubs and schools, and becoming widely regarded as the region’s leading youth football development coach.
Alex – a former teammate of Jamie Gosling – has an amazing footballing pedigree and is one of the most qualified coaches in Australia.
Alex was a professional footballer for 17 years (1994-2011) in England, playing more than 500 games and scoring 55 goals, having started life at EPL giants Liverpool FC as a youth team player alongside the likes of Liverpool legends Robbie Fowler and Steve McManaman.
He played for 9 clubs from the Championship (one below the English Premier League) through to the Conference, and has passed his UEFA A Licence (only currently 1,400 coaches have gained this licence in England) and England Football Association Youth Modules 1, 2 & 3.
He also coached for 5 years with Championship side Bristol City from U10s through to senior professional players following the end of his playing career, before making the move to Australia.
