In 1940 he won the championship there, the northern group of the league that counts but no more than the official title as the war Championships 1945, which celebrated the new North First from Rouen to a 4-0 victory over the Lyon Olympique Universitaire Südsieger. 1941, 1942 and 1943, Delfour finished with this club also formed their second place in the Northern Group. After the liberation of France, he returned to Paris and back yet still played one season in Division 1 for Red Star Olympique. At the end of his team made it to the finals in the Cup.
