Club careerEdit

Born in L'Hospitalet de Llobregat, Barcelona, Catalonia, Ciércoles made his senior debut in the 2006–07 season with RCD Espanyol B, in Segunda División B. After four years with the side – being relegated twice from that level – he was released, and signed a two-year contract with neighbours CE Sabadell FC of the same tier.[1]

In his debut campaign with the Arlequinats, Ciércoles appeared in 26 games (all starts) as the club returned to Segunda División after 18 years. He played his first match as a professional on 1 October, coming on as a late substitute in a 1–0 away win against FC Barcelona B.[2]

After Sabadell's relegation in 2015, Ciércoles continued competing in the third division with that team as well as neighbouring CF Badalona.[3] On 8 January 2018, aged 29, he moved abroad for the first time in his career, joining GIF Sundsvall from the Swedish Allsvenskan on a two-year deal.[4]
