Born in Rennes, striker Georges Bourdin played for several years in the Amateur side at Stade Rennais. A loyal member of the Red and Blacks, he was drafted into the professional setup in 1948. He was faced with stiff competition in attack, and he would only make the odd appearance in the First Division as a Rennes player. On 23th September 1948, he made his professional debut, scoring a brace on his first appearance against Marseille in a 3-1 win. He would play in six matches that season, scoring five goals. The following, 1949/1950 season, he would make five consecutive appearances (from Matchday 4 to 8), and netted three times. Despite his impressive goalscoring statistics, we would not see him again wearing a Rennes shirt. So he chose to leave to find more game-play in November 1949 to join CA Paris, who were playing in the Second Division at the time. He spent a season at the club before ending his career at Angers.
