Torrecilla started his career at CF Extremadura, and broke into the first team in 1999, but only appeared in eight games in two 1/2 second division seasons combined. He moved to third level side Novelda CF in 2001–02, on loan without any success.
From 2005–09, after another spell with Novelda, Torrecilla played one season each in division two with CD Castellón, Ciudad de Murcia, Granada 74 CF (created upon the disappearance of the former) and Alicante CF (freshly promoted into that category).
In January 2010, aged only 30, Torrecilla retired from football, having been released by Granada CF after not being able to recover from his knee injury after a fourth surgery. He still contributed with two goals as the club returned to the second division after 22 years of absence.

Famous quotes containing the words career and/or football:
“I began my editorial career with the presidency of Mr. Adams, and my principal object was to render his administration all the assistance in my power. I flattered myself with the hope of accompanying him through [his] voyage, and of partaking in a trifling degree, of the glory of the enterprise; but he suddenly tacked about, and I could follow him no longer. I therefore waited for the first opportunity to haul down my sails.”
—William Cobbett (17621835)
“In this dream that dogs me I am part
Of a silent crowd walking under a wall,
Leaving a football match, perhaps, or a pit,
All moving the same way.”
—Philip Larkin (19221986)
