Born in the Ille-et-Vilaine region of Brittany, forward Pierre Letort began his career in inter-regional football with TA de Rennes, whilst coaching the strikers at the club of Vezin-le-Coquet, where his father was the first President. In 1946, he was recruited by Stade Rennais, where he would begin the season in the starting line-up as a left-winger. After scoring a goal against Marseille on Matchday 3 of the First Division season, and playing in the first five matches of the campaign, Letort would see his professional playing licence revoked after his former club, TA de Rennes made an official complaint to the league, having been opposed to his transfer to Stade Rennais University Club in the first place. He would thus be forced to drop down into the Red and Blacks' amateur side, where he would play until 1949, and with whom he would go on to finish Champions of Division d'Honneur in 1948. After his spell at Rennes, he left to join another local team, US Liffré.
