Sylvain Macé was an important figure when Stade Rennais FC won the Gambardella Cup (French FA Youth Cup) in 2003. He was undoubted first choice on the left wing, although sometimes on the right). Macé was a native of Rennes, and resembled Ludovic Giuly, and big things were expected of him. Unfortunately, he was unable to take things to the next level in CFA (French 4th Division) the following season, and was not offered a professional contract by the club. Accompanied by another disappointed former Rennes player, Sébastien Le Toux, he joined Lorient in 2004 and got his first taste of Ligue 2.
