Born in Janzé in the south of the Ille-et-Vilaine region of Brittany, Jean Lairy would enjoy just a single season in professional football. Arriving from Châteaubriant, where he played for the Voltigeurs Castelbriantais team, this pacy right-winger signed for Stade Rennais in 1955. He would make his debut on 7th August 1955 in the Odorico Cup, in an away tie at Rouen, where he would come on as substitute for Maiseau in the second half. In the league, in the Second Division, he would only play in four matches (three wins, one defeat), mainly due to competition from Louradour, Legrand and Maiseau for his place in the team. He would qualify for a Second Division Champions' medal that season, with Rennes winning the lead. But after a lean spell, with little game-time, he left Rennes to join the amateur side of U.S. Le Mans.
