Born in Saint-Etienne, Roger Vialleron naturally began his professional career with his hometown club, AS Saint-Etienne, after completing his military service in Algeria in 1948, having played in some small local clubs before turning professional. He would spend two years with "Les Verts", totalling 27 appearances in the First Division. Ironically, he would make his final appearance for Saint-Etienne against Rennes, one of the clubs he would subsequently join. In 1951, the midfielder would join Monaco in the Second Division, where he would be given limited game time, making just 15 appearances. He ended up spending the longest spell of his career with Stade Rennais, signing for them in 1952. Over his three seasons in Rennes, he would be primarily deployed as a midfield playmaker, but also plugged gaps in attack and defence. He would go on to play in 67 matches in a Red and Black shirt, scoring five goals for the club in that time. He would retire from football at the end of the 1954/1955 season.
