Aliaksandr YERMAKOVICH is one of the best players in the history of the club. As a player he spent here eleven glorious years. These seasons were determining in BATE's development as a European club.

"For every group of people it is important to have a healthy beginning, strong foundation. We build our team round people like Aliaksandr Yermakovich. He is an extremely reliable person. To add to that he is the coach's informal assistant on the pitch who is ready to help the youngsters any moment. His role is also the cohesion between generations at the club". This is a quote from BATE's first president Anatoli Kapski. Yermakovich indeed meant an awful lot for BATE in 1998-2008.

Aliaksandr started his way in football in youth school in Luninets, his native town. In summer he went into football and in winter switched for hockey. In 1987 their ice-hockey team were third in nationwide contest "Golden Puck". Yermakovich scored in the bronze final won against Yunost, the most famous hockey school in the country.

Dinamo-2 was the next stop in Yermakovich's prolific career. The team that preceded the famous Dinamo-93, where the player appeared thanks to Yuri Pyshnik together with another BATE legend Vadzim Skrypchanka. That team had an amazing bunch of players including Piotr Kachuro, Yuri Shukanov, Yuri Vergeichik, Andrei Lavrik, Gennadi Tumilovich, Sergei Yaskovich, Aleksandr Khatskevich. Due to high competition Yermakovich played just four games there. And in 1994 moved to Division 2 to join ambitious Ataka Minsk.

Yakov Shapiro's project was heading for the elite division. And with Yermakovich on board they managed to reach for a dream. Aliaksandr was one of the leaders of the club. Ataka had a short but prolific life in Belarusian football. The team had a fantastic season, earned a spot in UEFA Intertoto Cup, but ceased existing in 1997 due to financial troubles.

A group of Ataka players including Yermakovich moved to FC BATE. And Aliaksandr had no problems with adaptation there. "Philosophies of Yuri Puntus and Yakov Shapiro were very close. Both relied on bright attacking football. Short and middle range passes, improvising was highly praised, collective effort was great. And BATE had a fantastic squad with strong playrs", Yermakovich said about the beginning of his spell at BATE.

Already in 1999 the team lead by Yermakovich won the title. And Sam, as the versatile defensive midfielder was called by teammates and fans, became third goalscorer of the golden team with eight goals. Only top forwards Vitali Kutuzov and Nikolai Ryndiuk had more.

Yermakovich called another Aliaksandr - Lisouski, an attacking midfielder, - among his most convenient partners on the pitch. Sam was responsible for good balance in the midfield. He grabbed a lot of balls on rebounds and interceptions and started many attacks with his clever first touches.

In 2002 Dzmitri Likhtarovich, another defensive midfielder, was signed by BATE. Yermakovich and Likhtarovich created the most famous controlling midfield paring in the first 20 years of Belarusian competitions. That was BATE's most lethal weapon until 2008, bringing the Yellow Blues four national titles.

During this 6-year spell the Borisovites marched to UEFA Champions League Group stage. And in this tournament, at Torino Olympic stadium against FC Juventus (0-0), Aliaksandr Yermakovich played the last match of his glorious career.

After having finished the players career, Yermakovich became a member of the coaching staff. In 2012 he was promoted to the first assistant in Viktar Hancharenka's staff, and in 2013 became the head coach. And immediately won the national title in 2013 and Belarusian Supercup in 2014. Qualification to UEFA Champions League group stage was his third deed as BATE's gaffer.
