Goodwin didn't start playing football until the age of 18. He began his career at Wandin, which recruited him after he attended a wedding at the club.[1] In 1986 he made some reserves appearances for St Kilda.[2] The following year he had a stint at Box Hill, then made it into the seniors at Richmond. He spent five seasons with Richmond and then joined Melbourne, via the 1992 Pre-season Draft.[3][4] After two seasons at Melbourne, Goodwin moved to Tasmania, appointed playing coach of Devonport. While in Tasmania he captained the state at interstate football. He remained with Devonport until 1997, when he joined Frankston. Following another brief stint at Devonport, Goodwin returned to Wandin, where he played until the age of 39, retiring after suffering a 22nd broken nose.[5] In 2014, Goodwin was appointed playing coach of the Kinglake Football/Netball Club.
