League summary:

Segunda Division 2014/2015 (ongoing): 19 matches/0 goals (Racing Santander)



Fede San Emeterio joined Racing de Santander’s youth academy from a small team Textil Escudo in 2007, aged ten. On 14 January 2014, before even having appeared with the reserves, he made his senior debut, coming on as a late substitute in a 2–0 away win against UD Almería, for the campaign’s Copa del Rey. He made his league debut on 10 May, again from the bench in a 1–1 away draw against Coruxo FC. On 24 August he played his first match as a professional, replacing Javi Soria in the 64th minute of a 0–1 away loss against Girona FC for the Segunda División championship. His twin brother, Borja, is also a talented footballer – he’s a defender, he too was groomed in Racing’s youth setup. Few days ago both of them have received their first call up for the Spanish U19 national team. 



“He is very versatile, complete both physically and technically. He is a sensible, quiet and humble guy.”

(Raúl Pérez – Racing Santander youth coach)
