Born in the Mayenne region of France, Alain Lachèze started out with his hometown side, Stade Lavallois, in 1945, just after the end of the Second World War. He would spend four seasons there, winning the title of Promotion d'Honneur and the Western Cup in 1948. This adept striker turned professional in 1949, signing for Srade Rennais, where he would go on to spend the next three seasons. He would never establish himself for the duration in the starting line-up, but still made more than ten appearances each season, primarily on the right wing, and eventually in all the attacking positions during his last season at the club. Rennes would prove to be his one and only club as a professional football, as he went on to Saint-Nazaire before returning to his first team, Stade Lavallois for two season. He called time on his playing career with Caen after a spell with the Normandy side between 1955 and 1961, and sadly passed away there, at the tender age of 57.
