Gove, from St Thomas Grammar School, played his early football for the Collegians. A wiry wingman, he played 16 games in the 1914 VFL season and was chosen to represent the VFL in the Sydney Carnival.
Gove rode the racehorse Menthe into third place in the Springbank Corinthian Handicap, a race for amateur riders, at Moonee Valley Racecourse and then proceeded to travel straight over to the East Melbourne Cricket Ground to play a VFL game against South Melbourne, all on 29 May 1915.
