Aleksandr Lebedev is a product of Soligorsk Kids Sports School (DUSSH).
Nevertheless he, together with his classmate Maksim Zhaunerchyk did
not make it to the local Vysshaya Liga club Shakhtyor Soligorsk. As a
result both moved to BATE Reserves, and soon this decision by Borisov scouts
paid off. They guys soon became serious contenders for starting eleven.
Lebedev could boast perfect anthropometry. Tall and
well-coordinated, he was extremely good at fighting for headers. In his first
season (2003) he scored 16
goals for BATE Reserves in 30 league games and 5th November debuted in the Vysshaya Liga as a
substitute in the game against FC Darida (2:0).
Lebedev became an important element of rotation in Igor Kriushenko's
squad. He rarely spent 90 minutes on the pitch, but contributed a lot into the
team's performance, recording five goals and five assists. The next 2006 season became the climax
of Lebedev's BATE career. The Yellow-Blues managed to win the title and the Belarusian
Cup. In May the Borisovites beat FC Shakhtyor Soligorsk in
the cup final (3:1
AET) and in November BATE grabbed third championship title. Lebedev scored
in two last matches of the season against FC Dinamo Brest and then
against Shakhtyor Soligorsk,
converting the pass by Henadz
Blizniuk. After that Ihar
Stasevich doubled the lead, but in the second half the home side struck
three times to win. Luckily Dinamo
Brest manage to draw the game against Dinamo Minsk, which allowed
BATE to celebrate the title.
After that Aleksandr decided to move to Kuban
