Club careerEdit

Born in La Alberca, Salamanca, Castille and León, Pipo joined UCAM Murcia CF's youth setup in 2013, from AD Guadalupe.[1] He made his senior debut with the reserves on 6 September 2015, starting in a 2–0 away win against Mazarrón FC, and scored his first senior goal seven days later in a 6–0 home routing of AD Alquerías.

After scoring eleven goals during the campaign and helping his side achieve promotion to Tercera División, Pipo signed a one-year extension to his contract on 22 June 2016.[1] He made his first team debut on 6 May of the following year, coming on as a late substitute for Iban Salvador in a 0–1 away loss against CD Numancia for the Segunda División championship.[2]

On 10 August 2018, Pipo left UCAM for SCR Peña Deportiva,[3] winning the Balearic Islands group of the Tercera División and achieving promotion in his first season. He then signed for UD Las Palmas Atlético on 20 June 2019,[4] but terminated his contract within three days,[5] and went back to his former team in Segunda División B.[6]

On 17 September 2020, Pipo agreed to a three-year contract with AD Alcorcón, being immediately loaned to third division side Cultural y Deportiva Leonesa for the 2020–21 season.[7]
