Born in Rennes, Bernard Vileyn was signed up by Stade Lavallois in 1951, when the Orange and Blacks were playing in the Regional Division d'Honneur. In 1952, he linked up with his brother Jacques (who played for Stade Rennais from 1953 to 1954) with Drapeau de Fougères for a season, before spending the majority of his playing career with Saint-Malo (1954-1957). Vileyn was a defender, and he was picked up by Stade Rennais in 1957, but he was see very little in the way of game-time. On 17th November 1957, he was given his first start in a Red and Black shirt for the home game against Troyes, in a 4-0 win. He would only make three other appearances for Rennes thereafter, before leaving the club at the end of the 1957/1958 season to go back to amateur football. He began with US Beauregard in a suburb of Laval, before returning to Stade Lavallois in the Division d'Honneur from 1960 to 1961. He passed away, aged 71, on 1st January 2002.
