Born in Orihuela, Valencian Community, Roca played only lower league football in his country, representing Real Madrid C, Real Madrid Castilla, Real Murcia, CD Onda, CE Sabadell FC, Palamós CF, Novelda CF, CD Badajoz and Orihuela CF and appearing in 177 Segunda División B games over the course of 11 seasons. In the 1999–2000 campaign he was part of Villarreal CF's roster, but failed to appear in any official matches as the club promoted to La Liga.
At already 32, Roca moved abroad, going on to spend the rest of his career in Greece where he played for Panthrakikos FC, Olympiacos Volou 1937 FC (two spells) and Doxa Drama FC, for a total of 43 Superleague appearances. He retired in 2013 and immediately started coaching his last team, now in the second level.
