Club careerEdit

Brit was born in San Sebastián, Gipuzkoa. Having grown through the ranks of Real Sociedad and having played as a senior with modest clubs, mostly in the Basque Country, he made his debut in La Liga with CA Osasuna in the 2002–03 season; subsequently he served some loan stints in Segunda División and, after only 17 games with the Navarrese's main squad in two separate campaigns combined, he was released in summer 2006.

In 2007–08, Brit was an important member for CD Numancia in their championship-winning season after having joined the Soria side the previous year, contributing with 26 matches and nine goals.[1] Highlights included braces in 2–1 wins against Xerez CD (home)[2] and UD Las Palmas (away).[3]

Brit returned to the Basque region in late July 2009, joining Real Unión who had recently promoted to the second level. He experienced one of his best seasons as a professional by scoring 14 league goals, but the team was immediately relegated.[4]
