Hailing from the Finistère region in the West of Brittany, attacker Henri Combot was developed as a player with ES Kreisker in Saint-Pol-de-Léon. He played there for several years, alongside his younger brother, Jean, and then joined CU Angers afterwards. In 1941, he was recruited by Stade Rennais, where he began his professional playing career. Usually used as a left-winger, he would finish top scorer for Stade Rennais in the 1941/1942 season with nine goals to his name. After professional football was abolished in 1943, he returned to ES Kreisker for two seasons, before going back to Rennes after the war finished in 1945. He would be first-choice on the left side of Rennes' attack for three seasons. As of the 1947/1948 season, he would be moved into a more central role with the arrival of the talented Jean Grumellon at Stade Rennais. He would end up playing less and less, however, in his last two seasons with Rennes. He would leave the club in 1949 to sign for Le Mans, where he played for two years. He was not spared recurrent issues with knee injuries, and finished his career in amateur football with Stade Brestois.
