Graduates

Radosław Kałużny – former Polish international midfielder and World Cup participant (2002). Kałużny won two Polish Championships whilst at Wisła Kraków, then successfully continued his career in the German Bundesliga. His record includes 267 games in the Polish top-flight (39 goals) and 41 games for his country (11 goals).

Mariusz Lewandowski – one of the most successful players in the history of Polish football. An important player for leading Ukrainian club Shakhtar Donetsk, he won 5 Ukrainian Championship medals, 3 Ukrainian Cup medals, 3 Ukrainian Supercup medals and, most importantly, a UEFA Cup winners medal (2009). He is considered one of the best players to have ever player for Shakhtar. A Polish Hall-of-Fame member, Lewandowski played 64 times for the Polish national team, scoring 6 goals. He played at both the World Cup in Germany (2006) and the European Championship in Austria and Swizterland (2008).

Arkadiusz Woźniak – Polish Junior Champion (U19) and twice Champion of the Young Ekstraklasa (U21). Arek joined the Zagłębie Lubin youth development programme at the youngest possible age and progressed all the way to the first team, for which he made his debut in the spring of 2010. Woźniak is steadily becoming an increasingly important member of the Zagłębie Lubin first team, and his domestic performances were also noticed by the former Poland national team coach, Franciszek Smuda, who gave Arek his first international call up for the friendly game against Bosnia Herzegovina in December 2011.

Adrian Błąd – Similarly to Woźniak, Błąd’s first successes were in youth football (Polish Junior Champion [U19] and twice Champion of the Young Ekstraklasa [U21]). Błąd made his debut for the first team in August of 2009. During the next two years he made 19 appearances in the Polish top-flight. To ensure regular first-team football, he made a one and a half year loan move to Zawisza Bydgoszcz in the Polish 1st division (second-tier). He returned to Lubin in the winter of 2013 widely considered the best player in the 1st division, in which he scored 18 goals and had many more assists.  He is expected to be a first-team regular for Zagłębie in the years to come.

Damian Dąbrowski – currently on loan at Cracovia in the Polish First Division (second-tier), Damian made his top-flight debut for Zagłębie at the age of just 17. Dąbrowski is a regular in the Polish youth international se-up, where he often also is given the captain’s role. At this stage of his career it is important that Damian experiences regular first-team football, hence his current period away from the club.

Damian Kowalczyk – made his first team debut at the age of 17 during a 4-1 victory over Wisła Kraków. Kowalczyk was part of the Zagłębie Lubin U21 team which came second in the Young Ekstraklasa Championship and was also previously a finalist of the Polish Junior Championship (U19). He is making steady progress and is on course to become the Zagłębie Lubin first-choice striker. He is a regular Polish U19 international.
