Fabrizio Ferron (born 5 September 1965 in Bollate) is a former Italian footballer who played as a goalkeeper. He played over 300 games in Serie A.

Football career[edit]

Ferron started his career with the A.C. Milan youth team. He then played for Sambenedettese, before spending 8 seasons at Atalanta.

On February 23, 1992, Ferron suffered the infamy of conceding a late equaliser to Michelangelo Rampulla, the opposing goalkeeper for Cremonese, who became the first goalkeeper to score from open play in Serie A history.

In a 0–3 loss away to Reggiana on January 23, 1994, Ferron's heart stopped beating for some 15 seconds after a collision with an opposing striker. Luckily, he was revived shortly afterwards.

He then played for Sampdoria, and subsequently for Internazionale, as a backup to Angelo Peruzzi.

He joined Verona in summer 2000. In summer 2002, he joined Serie A newcomer Como, where he competed with Alex Brunner for a starting spot. He played his last Serie A games against Modena F.C. on 27 April 2003, at the age of 37 years, 234 days. Due to Brunner's departure and the club's relegation, he became regular starter for Como, ahead of Stefano Layeni. In the summer of 2004, he joined Bologna as a backup to Gianluca Pagliuca, who was one year younger than Ferron.
