Pierre Teysseyre was a striker, born in the Tarn region of France, and he was developed at Grenoble before starting his professional career in earnest in 1954 with SO Montpellier, playing in the Second Division at the time. Nicknamer "the detonator", he would finish top-scorer in his debut season in the Hérault region. He would stay with the club for three seasons, playing equally in attack and in midfield. His career would continue in Normandy with Rouen, also in the Second Division, where he spent the next two seasons, before signing for Stade Rennais in 1958. Faced with the competition for places with Méano, Mahi, Cuissard et al, he would make just thirteen appearances in a Red and Black shirt, scoring two goals for Rennes in that time. After struggling for gametime in his season at Rennes, he returned to Rouen, and was eventually transfered to Aix-en-Provence, where he would bring to a close his playing career as a professional. Having spent the vast majority of his career in the Second Division, he would move into amateur football in 1960, taking on the role of player/manager with Sarrians in the Vaucluse region, a team which he guided to promotion to the Division d'Honneur. He passed away, aged 86, on 17th November 2018.
