Jacques Cousin was a Paris-born striker, who began his playing career in the Doubs region of France with Sochaux, in 1942. The following season, the teams in the French Championship would be split into regions, but Sochaux would not figure amongst them. He was left to play for Reims-Champagne, before eventually returning to Sochaux in 1945. Alas, his team finished bottom of the First Division, and he was released by his club. The next season would be spent with AS Charentes d'Angoulême. In 1947, he caught the eye of Stade Rennais, who signed up this useful attacker. He would go on to spend three seasons with Stade Rennais University Club, regularly figuring in the starting line-up alongside the likes of Grumellon, Hauvespre and H.Combot. After Rennes, he signed for Sète, where he would play between 1950 and 1952, before finishing his professional playing days with Red Star in the Second Division. He continued to play in amateur football, with Blois, after that.
