Yves Le Floch was a midfielder who was born in Boulogne-Billancourt in the Paris region, but he made his first steps in his footballing career with Stade Briochin. In 1966, he left to pursue his studies in medicine at university in Rennes, and join the Red and Blacks of Stade Rennais. On 12th October 1966, he made his professional debut on Matchday 11 in the First Division match against Stade Français (2-1). He would make three appearances that season under the tutelage of Jean Prouff. In the subsequent seasons, he would spend most of his time playing in the Reserves, only making two further appearances as a professional in the 1971/1972 season. He would finally earn his stripes as a First-Team regular in the 1974/1975 season, albeit Rennes would end up relegated to the Second Division at the end of the season. By prioritising his studies over his footballing career, he was one of the players who were decried as "intellectuals", just like team-mates Kerbiriou, Kéruzoré and Redon. These four players were all involved in a dispute with the President of Stade Rennais at the time, and were all forced out of the club at the end of the season. Yves Le Floch would return to Saint Brieuc and his first team Stade Briochin, where he would end up hanging up his boots definitively to dedicate himself to his chosen profession as a Doctor, principally in sport and rehabilitation.
