Originally from the Lorraine region in the East of France, Alain Jubert kicked off his football career with Nancy, with whom he would win the Second Division Championship title in 1958, helping his side to promotion to the top flight in the process. Having spent three seasons in the East, he moved South to sign for Toulouse in 1960, and this clinical finisher would enjoy the "Pink City's" heyday over two seasons at the club in the First Division. As an experienced player at that level, Stade Rennais came in to sign him to bolster their attacking options in 1962. He would go straight into the starting line-up in his first season at the club, and would finish as Rennes' top-scorer with 17 goals to his name. The following season, he remained a first-team regular in the starting XI, but proved to be less successful in front of goal. In the 1964/1965 season, he would play in a more withdrawn role in the Rennes midfield, and only played in the first six matches of the league season, before disappearing from the starting line-up altogether, missing out on the famous French Cup run which saw Stade Rennais win the trophy for the first time. With hardly any match action the following season, he was loaned out to Metz in January 1966, with little or no success. He eventually decided to call time on his professional playing career, and returned to Brittany to play amateur football with Stella Maris in Douarnenez. He eventually went into football management, overseeing the Stade Rennais Academy, and the Reserve Team at Rennes in 1976. In January 1978, with Rennes in financial difficulties, he was called up to take over from Dubaële as First Team boss. He spent a season-and-a-half in charge of the side in the Second Division, before being replaced by Pierra Garcia at the start of the 1979/1980 season. He sadly passed away in Douarnenez on 20th September 2001, aged 64 years.
