Raised in La Puebla , he started playing soccer in the local team, UD Poblense . From there he went to RCD Mallorca in 1967 . Little by little, he managed to make a hole in the line-ups, being the starting goalkeeper when the Balearic Islands achieved promotion to the First Division , the 1968/69 season. After playing for a year with the vermilion in the highest category, he was transferred to RC Celta . [ 1 ]
In their first year in Vigo , the Celestes had one of the best seasons in their history, finishing the league in sixth position, which allowed them to qualify, for the first time, to play a European competition. Much of the success fell to Gost, who finished the league as the second-lowest-scoring goalkeeper in the championship, behind Valencia's Abelardo .
The following season, with his participation in the first leg of the UEFA Cup round of 30 , Gost became the first Majorcan footballer to play a European competition. However, the match, played on 15 of September of 1971 against Aberdeen FC , ended up being unfortunate for the goalkeeper Poblense: his mistake led to the first goal of the Scots which ended up winning by 0-2 and also suffered a fissure on the little finger. [ 2 ] The injury kept him inactive for several weeks, losing the title to Rafael Alarcia. Once recovered, he could not unseat the Cantabrian goalkeeper, remaining in his shadow for two years, until his relationship with Celta ended in the summer of 1973 . [ 3 ]
He then returned to his native Mallorca to play on the CD Constancia . In 1977 he began his second stage at UD Poblense , where he played four seasons, winning a Third Division championship . The 1981/82 season returned to CD Constancia again , where he retired after having once again won the Third Championship.
After hanging up his gloves, he made his debut as coach in the 1984/85 season, promoting CF Sóller from Preferente to Third Division. [ 4 ] The 1985/86 season went to the CD Constancia bench . Later he directed other groups of the Balearic Third such as Maganova and Arenal.
In September 1969 , shortly after his debut in the First Division with Real Mallorca , he was selected by Ladislao Kubala to participate in a concentration with the Spanish team , but then he was not called up for any match. [ 5 ]
