In 2003, Julien Féret was not offered a professional contract by Stade Rennais FC, the club who had developed him. He bounced back at Cherbourg in National (French 3rd Division), and spent 4 years in Ligue 2 with Niort, and then Reims before stepping up to the top flight, signing for Nancy. A that time, Laurent Blanc had pre-selected him on several occasions for France. In June 2011, he sealed the agreement, given in the previous January to rejoin his former club for 3.3 Million Euros. After a good first season, sllightly tainted by some inconsistent performances, he had an excellent second season, where he was regularly the heartbeat of the team. Under Manager Montanier in 2013/2014, Féret wasn’t in such good form in the first half of the season, and was frozen out in the second half of the season by his boss. After 111 matches and 27 goals to his name in Rennes' colours, his contract wasn’t renewed, and he big an emotional farewell to his fans at the Route de Lorient Stadium. In June 2014, he signed a two-year deal with Caen.
