Dominique Vésir made his first steps as a footballer in his hometown club, Pau, before being spotted by AS Saint Etienne in 1974, aged 16. In three seasons with the Greens, he would not establish himself with the First Team, spending most of his time with the Reserves. He would, however, make two minor appearances in the season when Saint Etienne were crowned French Champions in 1976. After a promising loan-spell with Bastia between 1977-1978, he headed North to sign for Valenciennes in the First Division. There he would become a first-team regular, and a key player in the build-up play at the club. After three full seasons in the North, he left for Brittany, where he joined Stade Rennais in 1981. The Red and Blacks were in the Second Division at the time, and he made the breakthrough quickly into the starting line-up. As a good ball-winner, he would still end up with slightly less appearances in his second season at the club, with this path to the First Team line-up blocked by the emerging talent at the club. He still finished up with a French Second Division Title, and promotion to the top flight in 1983, where he returned to favour as a first-team regular the following season. Alas, Rennes were unable to stave off relegation, and Vésir departed the club in 1984, having made over 70 appearances. He ended his playing days as a professional with CS Thonon in the Second Division between 1984-1985. He continued to play after that in amateur football back in Pau, before swapping his football boots for a role as an Insurance salesman in 1987.
