Simone Pesce (born 10 July 1982) is an Italian football midfielder who plays for Novara in the Serie A.



Pesce started his career off with small Italian club Latina in 1999. He remained at the club until 2005, making a nearly 150 appearances for the club and scoring 5 goals.

Sassari Torres[edit]

After greatly impressing during his five season spell with Latina, he moved to Serie C side Sassari Torres. In one season with the club he impressed very much and was signed by then Serie A side Ascoli Calcio in 2006. With Sassari Torres, he scored 3 goals in just over 30 appearances.


After moving to Ascoli Calcio in the wake of their relegation to the Serie B, Pesce soon became an important player to the team. After three seasons in the Serie B, in which Ascoli never managed to threaten for a promotion place, Pesce score 3 goals in a total of 54 appearances. Pesce played 4 matches (2 at Coppa Italia) at 2009–10 season prior to his transfer to Catania.


On August 31, 2009, the final day of the 2009 summer transfer market Calcio Catania announced the signings of Pesce from Ascoli Calcio and Giovanni Marchese from A.C. Chievo Verona. The duo were Catania's 15th and 16th signings of the summer as the club looks to improve on their last three Serie A seasons, aiming at UEFA Europa League football for the next season. Catania already negotiated with Ascoli earlier this summer purchasing Giuseppe Bellusci and also selling Vito Falconieri and Marcello Gazzola in joint ownership deals.

On December 30, 2009, Catania confirmed the transfer of Pesce back to Ascoli on a loan deal until the end of the season. The player failed to make a major impact with the Sicilian club, and failed solidify regular playing time as he made just five appearances, not scoring. In his six-month loan spell in the Serie B, Pesce quickly re-gained his starting position, and made 22 appearances, for the club. He returned to Catania in June 2010, and remained with the club for 2010-11 Serie A season.


On 15 July 2011, Novara announced to have signed Pesce from Catania for their Serie A comeback campaign, in a three year-contract.[1]
