Paid his own way over from Argentina to try and pursue a career in English football and after two seasons in non-league got his big break when Wycombe Wanderers signed him in 2005.
He subsequently moved to Peterborough for £150,000 and played in their Championship side last season before dropping into the Conference when he joined Reds in August 2010.
Earned his place in Crawley Town folklore with the injury-time goal which knocked Derby County out in the third round of the FA Cup this season and has been a regular throughout the season either in a wide position on the left or in a more central role as Reds won a place in the Football League.
