Jean Cueff was born in the Finistère region of Brittany, and started his footballing journey with Stade Léonard in Saint-Pol-de-Léon. A reliable midfielder, he was recruited by Stade Rennais in 1951, where he would play an average of 15 matches per season during his first three years at the club, before finally becoming a first-choice member of the First Team in the 1954/1955 season. Whilst with Rennes, he would win the Second Division Championship in 1956. Whilst being a footballer, Cueff continued to work in agriculture, and he would be one of the key figures in the Rennes midfield, but he was converted to a defensive role at the end of the 1956/1957 season, and the subsequent season too, following the arrival of Imbernon. He left Rennes in 1958, having spent seven seasons with the club, with over 180 appearances to his name. He eventually signed for Roubaux-Tourcoing, in the Second Division, where he would play between 1958 and 1962. He brought his playing days to an end there, before returning to his native Finistère, where he would pass away, at the tender age of just 50 years old on 1st January 1982.
