Originally from the Lorraine region in the East of France, Alain Jubert had a busy professional playing career. A striker by trade, he made his first steps in professional football with nancy, winning notably the French Second Division Championship in 1958. He also had spells with Toulouse, Rennes (from 1962-1966) and Metz. He hung up his boots playing for Stella Maris de Douarnenez, aged 29, where he went on to become Player-Manager. For his first managerial success, he was able obtain promotion with his team to Division d'Honneur (the highest level ever achieved by Douarnenez.) In 1976, he would return to Rennes to look after the Reserves and the Youth Teams. In January 1978, he replaced Claude Debaële, who was released for both economical and sporting reasons, at the head of Rennes' First Team. Despite a bad start to the campaign, Jubert managed to keep his team in the Second Division, finishing 12th in the table. He remained in the job for the whole 1978/1979 season, finishing 8th. The following season, the whole staff setup was put into upheaval, and he left his post to be replaced by Pierre Garcia. Subsequently, Jubert returned to live in Douarnenez, where he took over a bar. He passed away on 20th September 2001 in Douarnenez.
