Born in Bourg des Comptes near Rennes, Gérard Pinson played for La Bouexière between 1967 and 1970. This midfielder was doing his studies in Rennes at the same time as playing football. In 1970, he left Brittany to head to the North of France and signed for Dunkerque, where he spent a season. Heeding the call of his country, he did his military service at Lille in 1971, and then went on to become a teacher at Coudekerque-Branche for a year in 1973. In terms of his footballing career, he played for Grand-Synthe between 1974 and 1976, and then he arrived at Stade Rennais in 1977, where he would spend most of his time playing for the Reserves. He would make just one appearance for the professionals in Red and Black, taking the place of First Team players who had gone on strike. On 19th November 1977, he came on as a substitute for Claude Arribas in the 84th minute in a 2-2 home draw against Lille on matchday 15 in the Second Division. Given his limited game-time (just 7 minutes in total), he tied with Bellat in terms of the shortest professional career. He left Rennes in 1980 to return to play for La Bouexière between 1981 and 1984.
