Versatile defender Alain Noël arrived at Stade Rennais in the Summer of 1988 from Orléans, where he had been playing in the Second Division. After two full seasons in Division 2 with the Red and Blacks under Manager Raymond Kéruzoré, he also had a brief taste of the First Division in the 1990/1991 season, where he only managed to play three matches. In the 1991/1992 season, Manager Didier Notheaux gave him more game-time, in defence and in midfield (28 matches) in a year where Rennes got relegated in the play-off at the end of the season. Noël left in 1992 to join Créteil, having made a total of 86 appearances for Rennes, scoring once in that time.
