Born in the Côtes d'Armor region of Brittany, Hervé Ledan started his footballing career with Drapeau de Fougères. Striker by trade, he would join his brother Georges, who had already been playing for Stade Rennais for two seasons, in 1943. At the time, the Second World War was in full swing, and the Red and Blacks were playing football as an Amateur side. Playing alongside his elder brother, he would play in five league matches, scoring five goals in that short time. He would only spend one season at the club, however. In 1944, he returned to play for Drapeau Fougères, this time with Georges following his younger sibling. In 1950, he returned to Rennes, playing as a midfielder this time, but was used sparingly over two seasons, mainly because of the competition for places from Prouff, Nikitis and Esteban Gomez. He eventually left Rennes in 1952 to settle in Roscoff, where he created the Football Club Paotred Rosko.
