Tomaszem Hajto trafił do Las Vegas! - zgrupowanie
Football players from ŁKS began their training in Barcice, near Stary
S±cz. The group of players coached by Grzegorz Wesołowski has gained
a new member. On Sunday evening the team was joined by a left defensive
player of Vetra Vilnius from Lithuania, Gediminas Paulauskas, aged
26. Kamil Bartosiewicz has also arrived, and we are expecting Wahan
Geworgian to arrive today from ŁódĽ.
- “We spoke yesterday for quite a long time, and he assured me that he
would leave in the morning and would be with us for the afternoon training,”
said coach Wesołowski.
we waited for Tomasz Hajto, but he did not get here before
the second training session. “He sent an sms to Marcin
Adamski asking for directions to Barcice, so he will surely
get here soon, not later than in the morning,” said Wesołowski
before dinner. “Tomorrow he will be here before training.”
Wesołowski and Hajto meet again after
17 years. In 1991-92 Hajto, then aged 20, started his
league experience in Hutnik Kraków, together with Wesołowski,
10 years older and an experienced defensive player. “At
that time, he was a young player but already brave, ambitious
and tough, and he still is,” recollects Wesołowski.
Other new players also came to Barcice:
Nerijus Radzius (FBK Kaunas, Lithuania), Stanisław Terlecki
junior (GLKS Nadarzyn), and Robert Sierant (Kolejarz
Stróże), rejoining his former team.
ŁKS were accommodated in the "Las Vegas" hotel,
near the football field, sports hall and gym. Yesterday,
before mid-day the coach decided to have running exercise
to the mountains, and each player was carrying a sport
tester, for heart rate monitoring. Interestingly, players
from ŁódĽ were chasing a rabbit, as athletes used to say.
The role of the rabbit was played by one of the footballers
from the local team, familiar with all local trails and
paths, big and small, through which he lead league players
Then, training at the gym was held in the afternoon. “We’ll train in
an alternating system, in the mountains and in the gym, but we also want
to use the nearby sports field, because it looks well maintained,” says
Yesterday in Barcice the temperature dropped to minus 5 degrees Celsius.
“In fact, it feels much colder because of the gusty wind,” commented
Jacek Żałoba, team manager. “Barcice is set in a scenic place, at the
foot of the Beskidy, but is affected by specific airflows. Local people
warned us at the beginning that downslope winds (halny) are frequent
here, and gusts can be even stronger than those we felt today.
For footballers, this creates and extra obstacle in training, but
may bring good results, as they have to run uphill and at the same
time often struggle against the strong wind.

The football player, known for his liking for roulette, went not to
the USA, the world centre of gambling and sin city, but to Barcice,
for a training session of ŁKS, sports club from ŁódĽ. The management
of ŁKS did not have to think long about employing Hajto. His skills,
and his personal attitude are expected to help in keeping the team
in the A class.
- “In autumn we were too polite on the sports field. We were lacking
a leader and I believe that Tomek will take on this role,” said the
coach, Grzegorz Wesołowski, aged 47. Hajto, a defensive player, said
he can be a useful member of the team, and his optimism has started
to affect the other players.
- “After working properly during the preliminary period he will be
a great support for the team,” said the coach.
