Stolbtsy-born midfielder signed a contract with FC BATE in autumn of 2013. This was a logical continuation of the rapid progress of the player.

At the beginning of 2013 Karnitski did not have any experience of the Vysshaya Liga football. Before that he played only in the second Belarusian division. He made his debut in First League at the age of 19. Before that Aliaksandr played for FC Neman Stolbtsy in the Regional Championship and studied at Law College.

2009 season changed everything. Karnitski was offered a contract in FC Baranovichi, and a young player made an impression at once. And in two years, when Baranovichi were about to disappear, joined another second division club FC Polotsk. Sasha spent another good year there and attracted the attention of FC Granit, another First Division outfit. There scouts of FC Gomel found the midfielder.

It seemed that at 23 it will be difficult for the midfielder to make an instant impression. But he managed to become a regular starter and one of the leaders of Aleksei Merkulov team. In 2013 he was noted for an amazing goal against FC Torpedo-BelAZ from 70 meters. And he also scored the winning goal in Borisov in FC Gomel's stunning win against BATE (1-2).

BATE followed the player very closely and at the end of 2013 offered him a contract with the Yellow-Blues.

Karnitski's strong sides are fantastic stamina, good tackling, passing and shooting.
