Loïc Vincent was a goalkeeper developed at Stade Rennais FC under the tutelage of Christophe Lollichon. Aged just 19, he was often invited to train with the First Team squad to make up the numbers during the tenures of Paul Le Guen and Yves Colleu. But being behind Christophe Revault, Grégory Malicki and Fabien Debec, he had little or no chance of being able to shine in the 1999/2000 season. However, he did manage – with Revault out with a long-term injury, and Malicki sent-off at Nancy – to be named in the squad when Rennes were thrashed 0-5 at Sedan. After a second appearance on the team-list in the French Cup, he would only appear in the Reserves the next season. For the 2001/2002 season, he signed his first professional contract at Naval in Portugal, before returning a France a year later. He was to go on to make his name in the French Cup runs of Nîmes and Compiègne.
