Gomes spent his playing days as a defender primarily in Portuguese football. Spells with Lourinhanense and Felgueiras were followed by a Primeira Liga move to Campomaiorense in 2001.
His career continues with Chaves, Varzim and then Covilhã before ending his playing career in Cyprus at Akritas Chlorakas and AEK Kouklia.
