Zacharie Boucher (born 7 March 1992 in Saint-Pierre, Réunion) is a French footballer of Réunionais heritage who currently plays as a goalkeeper for French club AJ Auxerre in Ligue 2.[1] He is a French youth international and has served as the number one goalkeeper at under-16, under-17, and under-18 level.

Club career[edit]

Boucher began his professional career at Le Havre. For the 2010–11 season, he was installed as the club's third goalkeeper behind starter Mike Van Hamel and backup Johnny Placide. He made his professional debut on 29 July 2011 in a 2–1 win over Istres appearing as a substitute for starting goalkeeper Placide in the first half.[2]

After being voted the Best Goalkeeper in Ligue 2[3] for 2013, Boucher signed with Ligue 1 outfit, Toulouse in the 2013/14 winter transfer window. He quickly displaced Comorian international, Ali Ahamada, and with a series of excellent displays, helped the club to a credible 9th-place finish. The 2014/15 season did not go as well as his first, with him losing his starting place and having to share goalkeeping duties, where the club only narrowly avoided relegation as they finished in 17th place.

In July 2015, Boucher decided against staying at Toulouse and transferred to Ligue 2 club, Auxerre, where he would be the undisputed first choice goalkeeper. He has expressed his desire to one day return to the top flight, of which he knows he is capable of playing in, but believes remaining at Auxerre for the near future will be more beneficial for his development.[4]
