Alain Séradin was an attacking midfielder, born in Saint-Brieuc, in Brittany, and he took his first steps in the game at his hometown club. In 1971, this talented midfielder was spotted, and signed up by Stade Rennais. But he was frozen out by the intense competition for places, and only made two appearances in the 1971/1972 season, on matchdays 34 and 35, against Reims and against Monaco respectively. After that, he wouldn't see any action in the First Team during the 1972/1973 season, being farmed out to the Reserves in the main. In the 1974/1975 season, his last at the club, he made just five appearances in total, between matchdays 6 to 10. His final tally would be a meagre 7 First Division matches in a Rennes shirt, of which 6 came in the starting line-up. The following season, he returned to Saint-Brieuc, and then ended his playing career with Lamballe. In 1979, he set up the Association "Le Football, La Vie" with some of his Lamballe teammates, as well as a monthly magazine "Le Contre-Pied" (The Wrong Foot), which talks about women's football, the participation of unions, and public education in football more globally. He subsequently went into coaching, looking after the youth teams at AS Ginglin and then US Langueux.
