Ibón Pérez Arrieta (born 9 June 1977 in San Sebastián, Gipuzkoa) is a Spanish footballer who plays as a striker.

A "journeyman", he played for 14 clubs in six different countries.

Football career[edit]

In his country, Pérez could never play in higher than the third division in his beginnings, moving in 2001 to Iberian Peninsula neighbours Portugal with Desportivo de Chaves where he scored at incredible rate, always in the second division. He had also spells in the country's top level, with Sporting de Braga and G.D. Estoril Praia.

Pérez returned in 2005 to his homeland, joining division two side Racing de Ferrol, but again had no luck, appearing in less than 1/4 of the season's matches as his team was also relegated. He then played in quick succession for CD Logroñés, Maccabi Herzliya FC, PAS Giannina FC and UD Melilla.

In the 2007 summer, following a successful trial which included a preseason mini-tour of Austria, Pérez joined Swindon Town on a two-year contract.[1] He made his club debut as a second-half substitute on the opening day draw at Northampton Town, and scored his first goal in the Johnstone's Paint Trophy versus Brentford, executing an overhead kick.

In January 2008, however, Pérez left Swindon and signed a contract with Romanian team CS Pandurii Târgu Jiu, leaving the club after two 1/2 seasons with a maximum of nine top division games played (in 2009–10).
