Born in Suresnes, in the western suburbs of Paris, Perrinelle began his career in the youth system of Amiens and in 2004 joined US Créteil with whom he made his professional debut. In 2005, he joined Ligue 2 side Clermont Foot, where he stayed just one season before moving to US Boulogne, then of the Championnat National.
He spent four seasons at Boulogne, and was part of the team that won promotion to Ligue 2 in 2007 and promotion to Ligue 1 in 2009 under manager Philippe Montanier. On the final match day of the 2007–08 Ligue 2 season Perinelle scored a famous goal for Boulogne in a home match against Chamois Niortais FC, who were one place above Boulogne. A tense game saw Boulogne win the match in the 95th minute through a goal by Perrinelle which kept Boulogne up whilst sending Niort down to the Championnat National. Perrinelle scored his first goal in Ligue 1 on 23 December 2009 in a 2–2 draw against Nice. In four years at the club Perrinelle appeared in 99 league matches and scored 6 goals.
In the summer of 2010, he rejoined Clermont Foot on a three-year contract. In his first season back with the club he quickly established himself as a key player starting 36 league matches and scoring 3 goals. During his second stint at the club he captained the team during its run in the 2010–11 Coupe de France and made 73 league appearances scoring 4 goals. He left Clermont at the end of his contract in June 2013.
Perrinelle received offers from clubs in Greece and trialed with New York Red Bulls after leaving Clermont. Six-months later, he joined Ligue 2 club Istres on 30 January 2014. During his half season at the club Perrinelle established himself as a starter making 13 league appearances.
