Felipe Sanchón Huerta (born 8 April 1982) is a Spanish professional footballer who plays for Girona FC as an attacking midfielder.

Club career[edit]

Born in Barcelona, Catalonia, Sanchón started his career at the age of 10, in FC Barcelona's youth system. Between 2001 and 2004 he represented the club's C and B-teams and, during this period, he was capped by Spain at youth level.

Unable to carve a niche with the main squad Sanchón was released, going on to play for Barça neighbours UE Figueres, Girona FC and CE L'Hospitalet. His first taste of top level football arrived when he signed for Thessaloniki-based Aris FC, in July 2007.

In 2009's January transfer window, Sanchón returned to Spain and Girona on a loan until the end of the season. On 11 January, in a second division home game against SD Eibar, he scored in a 2–0 win in his first appearance,[1] netting six times in only 17 matches as the side managed to retain their league status.

On 28 July 2009, Sanchón joined Granada CF, loaned by Udinese Calcio alongside eight other players after the two clubs' partnership agreement. He contributed with 33 games and four goals as the Andalusia team returned to the second level after an absence of 22 years, but in late January 2011 left for another club in that tier, Gimnàstic de Tarragona, still owned by the Italians.[2]
