Jamie Gosling (born 21 March 1982) is an English semi-professional football midfielder. He previously played professionally in the Football League for Yeovil Town and Torquay United. He currently plays for FNQ Heat FC of Cairns in the National Premier Leagues Queensland.

Gosling was on schoolboy terms with Bristol Rovers before joining Team Bath. He left in September 2000 to join local rivals Bath City. In April 2003 he had a trial with Cheltenham Town[1] and in July 2003 joined Yeovil Town.[2] He made his league debut on 9 August 2003 as Yeovil won 3–1 away to Rochdale, Yeovil's first ever game in the Football League.[3]

He joined Conference National side Aldershot Town on loan in March 2004[4] and had trials with Chester City, Boston United and Hereford United during the 2004 close-season. He returned to Team Bath on a short term contract in August 2004.[5]

He joined Weymouth that November,[6][7] but played just once, in the FA Trophy, before joining Torquay United on a free transfer.[8]

Gosling made his Torquay debut as a half-time substitute for Martin Phillips as Torquay lost 1–0 at home to Barnsley[9] and started, and scored in, the 1–1 draw away to Chesterfield the following week.[10] He lost his place after Torquay's 1–1 draw away to Huddersfield Town on 8 January 2005, a game in which Gosling was replaced early in the second half by Matthew Hockley,[11] and was released in February 2005,.[12]

He joined Woking later that month[13] and was a regular until the end of the season.

In August 2005 Gosling joined Forest Green Rovers,[14] but was released in November 2005.[15]

Gosling joined Hungerford Town in the 2006 close season. He suffered a collapsed lung in March 2007 in a game against Shortwood United.[16] In May 2007 his initial one-year contract with Hungerford was extended by a further year.[17] At Hungerford, Gosling played with future England striker Charlie Austin.

He rejoined Bath City in June 2008[18] but left again in November 2008 rejoining former club Hungerford Town.

Gosling moved to Australia and joined Douglas United in Far North Queensland in 2013, playing in the FNQ Premier League before signing with Far North Queensland FC in Cairns in 2014.

In July 2015, Gosling announced the launch of the Jamie Gosling Football Academy,[19] a private coaching academy in Cairns for boys and girls aged 3–16.
