Kobets played important role in BATE squad at the beginning of the century.

Belarusian championship twice and won the Belarusian Cup once and became a player of Belarusian
U-21 team. Kobets arrived to BATE aged 20 in 2001 season.

Blues in terms of result, was the best for Kobets. In the young squad of Igor Kriushenko Kobets was a true leader. In this
team he was both a restless powerhouse as well as most prolific goalscorer,
recording 11 goals in 25 matches, which was the best result in the team.

net managed to cover all attacking positions in the midfield and deservedly
received traditional BATE Player of the Year Award from Borisov region
In 2006 season statistically Kobets was not that impressive,
but this time BATE managed to win the gold for the third time in history. After
this success Aleksandr, at that time 25 years old, moved on to join FC Gomel. "For six years at the club we
won a lot of trophies, won two titles and a Cup, and finished in top-3 several
times. But still it is a bit sad. It is difficult to part with such a friendly
squad and staff", - said Sasha in his last interview as BATE player.
Kobets changed several teams in Belarus, playing for FC Gomel, FC Vitebsk, FC Naftan Novopolotsk, FC Slaviya Mozyr.
