The rover was recruited after winning the Best and Fairest award at VFA club Port Melbourne, where he had played since 1973. While Goss announced he wanted to play for Melbourne in 1976, South Melbourne held his VFL rights and refused to clear him for less than $10,000. It took until after the opening round of the season to confirm the deal, in a three way swap that saw Peter Keenan join North Melbourne, who gave us Barry Goodingham to South, and with the Swans and Roos paying Melbourne $25,000 and $15,000 respectively.

Goss was immediately elevated to the senior side, but after four games in the first half of the season he returned to Port for 1977, playing 128 games for them until 1981, including the 1980 premiership.

His brother Norm played 202 games for South Melbourne and Hawthorn. Another brother Kevin played 24 games for South.
