Pedro Santa Cecilia García (born 10 March 1984), known simply as Pedro, is a Spanish retired footballer who played as a right midfielder.

Football career

Born in Gijón, Asturias, Pedro made his professional debut with hometown's Sporting de Gijón on 12 February 2006, in a 0–0 away draw against Recreativo de Huelva. He went on to become an important midfield element in the subsequent seasons, playing 37 games in 2007–08 to help the club return to La Liga after a ten-year hiatus.

Pedro first appeared in the top level on 31 August 2008, featuring 11 minutes in a 1–2 home loss to Getafe CF. He appeared in 17 matches during the campaign, almost always as a substitute, and played almost no part in 2009–10 as the team again managed to maintain their top division status, being released in June 2010.

On 6 September 2010, Pedro signed a one-year contract with Albacete Balompié in the second division, being released only three-and-a-half months after. In August of the following year, he moved abroad and penned a one-year deal (with the option for a further season) with Belgian Second Division side R. Charleroi SC.

On 11 October 2012, after terminating his contract with the club and having appeared in only one Pro League game, Pedro signed for Auckland City FC in New Zealand, joining several compatriots including manager Ramon Tribulietx.
