Club Deportivo Morón is an Argentine sports club located in the city of Morón, Buenos Aires. The football team currently plays in Primera B Metropolitana, the regionalised third division of the Argentine football league system.

The club was founded in 1947 under the name "Club Sportivo Morón". Three years later the club joined the AFA and began playing in Tercera de Ascenso, (now Primera B Metropolitana). In 1951 it changed the name to "Club Deportivo Morón", which has remained since. Lee Siddle, without a club since the Plough disbanded in 2006, took over on 25th September and immediately put himself in charge of driving the bus, running the line, collecting the subs, picking the team, pealing the oranges and paying the ref. However, his best decision was when he picked unknown Polish dart player Jonathan Szymankovic-Polskischloppen to be his target man. Szymankovic-Polskischloppen wage demands of £32,000 per year were unheard of at this level, especially as he demanded them all up front. On the 27th September, having not been passed the ball by Ash Taylor, Szymankovic-Polskischloppen's tempremental nature once again got the better of him and he stormed out of the club, claiming he "had to be at work at 7 the following morning".
