Antoine Gounet (born 16 October 1988) is a French football goalkeeper, who currently plays for Magreb'90. He began his career in his native France with Tours, before moving to England and joining Brentford in 2011.
Gounet moved to Ligue 2 club Tours at the age of 18. Following an injury to first team keeper Peter Jehle, Gounet served as backup to Denis Ribeiro for a number of Ligue 2 and Coupe de France matches during the 2008–09 season. While at Tours he was a team mate of future France internationals Laurent Koscielny and Olivier Giroud. Gounet made 40 appearances for the B team in the Championnat de France amateur 2 during his time at the club, including 28 appearances during the 2010–11 season. His spell at Tours came to an end after he suffered an injury in 2010, which kept him out of football for a year and saw him released by the club in June 2011.
After arriving in London in October 2011, Gounet was awarded a two-week trial at League One club Brentford and impressed enough to be awarded a contract running until the end of the 2011–12 season. He failed to feature for the first team during the season and played instead for the Development Squad. In the summer of 2012, Gounet was awarded a contract for the 2012–13 season. He received his maiden call into the first team squad for a League Cup first round match versus Walsall on 12 August 2012, remaining on the bench for the 1–0 defeat. Gounet made his professional debut in an FA Cup second round replay against Bradford City at Griffin Park on December 18, 2012. He started the match and conceded two goals as Brentford ran out 4–2 victors after extra time. During the latter part of the season Gounet became a regular backup to Simon Moore. He also made eight Professional Development League 2 South appearances for the Development Squad during the 2012–13 season. Gounet was released upon the expiration of his contract, shortly after Brentford's League One Playoff Final defeat to Yeovil Town. He made just one first team appearance for the Bees.
Gounet was offered a contract by Ligue 2 club Stade Laval in the summer of 2013, but turned it down as he wished to remain in England. In January 2014, Gounet tweeted that he had been training with Premier League side Fulham. Gounet joined Scottish Championship side Hibernian on trial in July 2014, linking up with former Brentford teammate Farid El Alagui. He played in a 2–0 pre-season friendly win over Stirling Albion on 20 July, with manager Alan Stubbs remarking after the game that he would keep Gounet on trial. In September 2014, Gounet tweeted that he was still looking for a new club.
