Saint-Brieuc born Jacques de Montmarin was a goalkeeper, who made his playing debut with Le Mans at the end of the 1930s. After clubs were reoganised and replaced by regional representative teams during the Second World War, the professional championship was put on hold. He signed for Rennes-Bretagne, which Le Mans was associated with in the 1943/1944 season. He started in 24 matches, conceding 51 goals. In the 1944/1945 season, professional football returned, and de Montmarin returned to spend a season with Le Mans, before moving to Reims, where he would see virtually no game-time whatsoever. So, then he chose to sign for Stade Rennais, for whom he would become first-choice goalkeeper in the first few games of the 1946/1947 campaign, in the First Division, before being used as part of a rotation with Guimbart, before finally losing his spot altogether to Hatz. With a rather disappointing record of 33 goals conceded in just 13 games, he would not figure in the professional team thereafter, ending his spell at Rennes with two seasons playing for the Reserves in amateur football. Eventually, he would leave Rennes to sign for the more modest outfit, Amboise..
