Gorka Azkorra Trueba (born 25 January 1983) is a Spanish footballer who plays for Sestao River Club as a centre forward.

He amassed Segunda División totals of 178 games and 22 goals during eight seasons, representing mainly in the competition Albacete and Salamanca (two years apiece). In La Liga, he appeared for Athletic Bilbao.

Club career[edit]

Born in Bilbao, Basque Country, Azkorra emerged through local giants Athletic Bilbao's youth system, but could only amass five appearances with the main squad – all in the 2004–05 season – after having scored prolifically with the club's B and feeder teams. He made his La Liga debut on 3 October 2004, playing 25 minutes in a 1–3 away loss against Getafe CF.

Released in the 2005 January transfer window, Azkorra resumed his career in the second division, with Recreativo de Huelva, CD Numancia, Albacete Balompié and UD Salamanca. Whilst with the latter side, in the 2008–09 campaign, he reunited with former Athletic youth teammate Mikel Dañobeitia.

Azkorra continued competing in the second and third levels during the following years, representing CD Lugo, Deportivo Alavés, CD Guadalajara, Hércules CF, Gimnàstic de Tarragona, Real Murcia and Sestao River Club.
