Born in Plancoët, Jean Claude Delorme began his playing career with Stade Briochin (Saint-Brieuc) before being picked up by Stade Rennais in 1962. He signed his first contract there as an apprentice professional, but would see precious little gametime with the First Team. Indeed, the striker would only make three appearances in the league, his debut coming on 3rd March 1963 against Nîmes. He also played in a Drago Cup match against Lens. With little prospect of a regular place, he left Rennes at the end of the 1962/1963 season to sign for AS Brestoise as an amateur. There he would prove himself to be a clinical and prolific marksman. In 1965, he signed for neighbours Stade Brestois, where he enjoyed the best days of his career. Starting in amateur football with them (1965-1970), he rose with them to the ranks of professional football (1970-today), helping the club to grow, reaching the Second Division for the first time in the club's history. In 1975, he decided to call time on his career as a player, having achieved the status of third-highest scorer in the history of Stade Brestois with 95 goals to his name.
