Youth and Varsity Rugby

After playing high school rugby for Selborne College in his hometown of East London, Godfrey moved to Durban to join the Sharks Academy, representing the Sharks U21 side during the 2010 Under-21 Provincial Championship competition.

He returned to the Eastern Cape in 2012 and joined up with the Port Elizabeth-based Varsity Cup side, the NMMU Madibaz. The Madibaz finished fifth in 2012 Varsity Cup, with Godfrey playing in all seven their matches during the season, scoring two tries. He also played for them in 2013 and 2014. Not only did he once again start their matches during both these seasons, but he was also named captain of the side. He weighed in with four tries during those two seasons to help the Madibaz achieve their best results in the Varsity Cup, reaching the semi-final for the first time in 2013 and repeating the feat in 2014.

SWD Eagles

Godfrey's Varsity Cup exploits didn't go unnoticed at provincial level and he was signed by George-based outfit SWD Eagles for the 2013 Currie Cup First Division season. He made his debut by starting in the opening match of their season, away to Border Bulldogs in Godfrey's home town of East London. He scored a total of four tries during the season, the first coming against eventual champions the Pumasin Nelspruit and also getting a brace against the Falcons in George. He was a regular in the side throughout the campaign, starting in all their matches during the season and occasionally captaining the side in the absence of regular skipped Kabamba Floors.

Perpignan

After the conclusion of the 2014 Currie Cup First Division season, Godfrey signed for French Rugby Pro D2 side Perpignan as a short-term replacement for Sona Taumalolo.

Wimbledon

He joined English National League 3 London & SE side Wimbledon RFC prior the 2015–16 season.

Jersey Reds

On 27 April 2017, Godfrey signed for RFU Championship club Jersey Reds prior to the 2017-18 season.
