Born in Oran in Algeria, Louis Ferry arrived in France in 1954, starting his footballing journey in the South of France, firstly with AS Cannes, then with Toulon. He never got to play professional football with those two clubs, playing exclusively with the amateurs. He returned to Algeria in 1958, but returned to France in 1960 to sign for Stade Rennais. He became first-choice goalkeeper for the Red and Blacks in his very first season at the club. The following season, however, he would lose his place in the starting line-up. Stade Rennais had four goalkeepers in its squad for the 1961/1962 campaign, Ferry made just eight appearances in that year, including the last five games of the season in the First Division. The following year, he would leave Brittany to join Limoges in the Second Division, where he would spend two seasons, before going on to finish his playing days at Nice (1964-1967).
