Luc Barraud was a midfielder, born in the Charente-Maritime region on the West coast of France. He began his playing career with La Rochelle in 1971. There, he would experience both the Second and Third Divisions during his three seasons at the club. In 1975, he moved to Concarneau in the Third Division, spending two seasons there before heading off to Le Mans for the subsequent two years. It was in 1979 that Stade Rennais recruited him to bolster their midfield. He would only spend one year in Red and Black, but played in every game for Rennes that season in Division 2, whether it was in the league, the French Cup, and the play-offs against Avignon. After missing out on promotion with Rennes, he left them to head to Caen in 1980. He played a full season there as first choice in the starting line-up, with over 30 appearances to his name. In 1981, he returned to Brittany and signed for Quimper, where he would spend the next four years. He ended his professional playing career in 1985, totalling nearly 200 appearances in the Second Division. In that same year, he returned to La Rochelle, in the Fourth Division, where he stayed until 1990. Subsequently, he turned his hand to coaching, becoming Assistant Manager for his local side in La Rochelle, before becoming First-Team Manager with Périgny in Amateur football between 1994-1998.
