Originally from the Morbihan region in Brittany, Daniel Cavil began his footballing journey in his hometown with CEP Lorient. In 1966, he was signed up by Stade Rennais, and picked in the Rennes starting line-up at the outset of the 1966/1967 season. He would take part in two matches in the Odorico Cup in August 1966, a trophy won by Rennes. This attacking player, usually used on the wings, would see action in five out of the first seven league matches, but thereafter he was frozen out of the team because of the competition for places, and he lost the confidence of the Manager Jean Prouff. He would never be seen in a Rennes shirt again. He left the club at the end of the 1966/1967 season to return to Lorient, where he would see out his remaining years in his career before retiring from football.
