Born in Segré, Pascal Delaire was 13 years old when he arrived at Rennes in 1973. He played in all the Youth Team categories for Stade Rennais, with some success, as he won some trophies during that time. He won a regional champions medals in 1974/1975 (U12) and 1977/1978 (U18) in Ille-et-Vilaine, and he also took part in a good French Cup run at U14 level, only being knocked out at the Quarter-Final stage by Paris Saint Germain in the 1975/1976 season. He then signed forms as an apprentice professional, aged 18, for the 1978/1979 season, but would have to make do with playing in the eighth-tier of French Football (Division Supérieure Régionale) for the Red and Blacks. He would stay for a further year, even though no longer under contract, and got called up by Alain Cosnard to the Reserve team on several occasions. At the time, the Reserves were playing in the Fifth Division (Division d'Honneur) and were promoted to the Fourth Division at the end of the season. He left Rennes after the 1979/1980 season to join Le Rheu in step eight. After that he played for La Bouexière under the management of former Rennes player, René Izquierdo, who was player-manager there at the time, and then Municipaux. He finished his league career back at Le Rheu, whom he helped gain promotion to DRH (Division Régionale d'Honneur).
