Born in the South of France, in the Bouches-du-Rhône region, François Bonnet would spend three seasons with SO Montpellier, before joining Stade Rennais in 1937. As a versatile striker, he would initially be used as a right winger in his early days at the club. In the 1938/1939 campaign, however, he would play in virtually every position across the front line at Rennes, scoring 20 goals in 32 matches, including a hat-trick in the French Cup against Angoulême. The following season, he returned down South to play for Olympique de Marseille, and then - subsequently - with the club Beaucaire. From 1941 onwards, he would spend a year-and-a-half in the colours of Saint-Etienne, before returning to Stade Rennais University Club, where he would only make the odd appearance in a few matches. He ended his career as Player/Manager with Beaucaire.
