Club career[edit]

Born in Casas del Señor, Valencian Community, Antón joined Real Madrid's youth system in 2003, aged 14. Four years later he made his senior debuts, spending three full seasons with the B-team in Segunda División B.

Without actually making his La Liga debut, Antón was an unused substitute in Bernd Schuster's last game in charge of the first team, a 3–4 home loss against Sevilla FC on 7 December 2008. The following match, a 0–2 defeat at FC Barcelona in Juande Ramos' debut, he was again on the bench.

On 28 July 2010, Antón moved to Real Betis,[1] spending his first and only season in Andalusia with the reserves also in the third level. In the summer of 2011 he had a trial with FC Red Bull Salzburg, signing shortly after and joining Hungarian top flight club Újpest FC the following year.

Antón signed for UB Conquense on 30 January 2015, receiving the international clearance seven days later.[2]

On 28 March 2017, Antón signed a one-year contract with SJK.[3]
