Aitor Fernández Abarisketa (born 3 May 1991) is a Spanish footballer who plays for CD Numancia as a goalkeeper.

Club career[edit]

Born in Arrasate, Gipuzkoa, Basque Country, Fernández joined Athletic Bilbao's youth setup in 2003, aged 12. He made his senior debut for the farm team CD Basconia in 2008, in Tercera División.

On 29 June 2010, after being promoted to the reserves in Segunda División B, Fernández was called up to the first team for the pre-season as a backup to Gorka Iraizoz and Raúl Fernández.[1] However, he only appeared in 19 matches for the former during the campaign, mainly due to a hand injury which kept him out for two months,[2][3] and struggled even more in 2011–12, again due to injuries, being overtaken by new signing Jon Ander Serantes.[4][5]

On 22 July 2012, Fernández was loaned to fellow league side Barakaldo CF for one year,[6] but had his contract with the Lions terminated on 28 January 2013.[7] He signed a two-and-a-half-year deal with Villarreal CF a day later, being assigned to the B-team also in the third level.[8]

On 6 July 2016, Fernández joined Segunda División club CD Numancia on a two-year contract.[9] He made his professional debut on 4 September 2016, starting in a 1–1 away draw against AD Alcorcón.[10]
