Adrian Caceres is an Australian/Argentinian left sided attacking midfielder who was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina on 10th January 1982. Caceres played for Perth Soccer Club as a youngster before being snapped up by Southampton in September 2000. The skilful dribbler signed a three year contract, but failed to make a single first team appearance for Saints. He was fairly prolific for the reserves during 2000/01, netting 7 goals from 18 games.

Caceres had a short loan stint with Brentford in September 2001, but failed to make much of an impact at Griffin Park. He was allowed to leave Southampton on a free transfer to join Hull in March 2002 on a short term contract. Caceres didn't do enough to warrant a longer stay in Humberside.

Caceres resurrected his career with a successful two year spell back in Australia with Perth Glory, who he signed with following his Hull release in 2002. The former Saints youngster returned to England in 2004 to sign for Yeovil Town. Caceres scored on his Glovers bow against Bury on 7th August 2004, and bagged a further three over the course of the season. He played his part in Yeovil's 2004/05 League 2 title win, before joining Conference side Aldershot on a free in February 2005. Caceres was on the move again in April 2005, signing for Wycombe in yet another week-to-week deal.

Caceres found success on his return to Australia in 2005. After a fulfilling year with Perth Glory FC, he joined Melbourne Victory, where he picked up an A-League Championship winners medal. Caceres defected to Central Coast Mariners in February 2008. A year later he came to a mutual agreement with the club to terminate his deal. He spent 2009/10 with Wellington Phoenix, before embarking on short spells with lower league outfits Inglewood United and Heidelberg United.

In 2011 Caceres made the move to Indonesian side Real Mataram, who struggled towards the bottom end of Liga Primer Indonesia. His next destination was Chiangrai United of Thailand, who he signed for in 2012.
