Interview

Introduce yourself…

Zack Kotwica I’m 24 born in Gloucester and playing for them. I started my career and Cheltenham Town, earning a pro contract with them when I was 17.

What is the most important football lesson you have learned and who taught you that? Explain your answer.

The most important thing I’ve learned in football is no matter how much ability you have hard work and commitment will always get you further.

Zack, you began your career with Cheltenham Town FC. How did you get into the youth of Cheltenham ? And who helped you the most?

I got scouted by Cheltenham was I was 7 years of ages playing for Brockworth Albion and a summer tournament my friends dad was the manager and he took me training and from there I progressed all the way to earning a pro contract

On 3 August 2013, you made your professional debut in a 2–2 draw with Burton Albion FC. How important was that moment for you ?

Making my debut was the best thing in my football career at the time was literally a dream come true to play professionally for the team I had beef at from such a young age, was a really proud moment for myself and my family.

In December 2014, you scored your first professional goal for Cheltenham in a 1–1 draw with Mansfield Town FC. How did you experience these moment?

My first professional goal for Cheltenham well what can I say it was a unbelievable moment the new gaffa had been in a couple games and trusted me to go. And get something out of the game for us, the ball dropped to me on the edge of the box I chested it down and volleyed it in the top corner my celebration said it all to be honest I didn’t know what to do haha 😂.

By Cheltenham Town FC, you was loaned out to different football clubs. At which club did you learned the most?

I was loaned to Gloucester when I first signed my contract to get some experience in men’s football I went there for a month and scored a couple goals and really enjoyed my time there it put me I good stead stepping up into league two.

In the 2016/2017 season, you joined Gloucester City AFC. where you made 52 league appearances during the season. Why did you leave Gloucester after one season ?

Eventually at Cheltenham my time came to an end with a new manger coming in and bring new players in and we parted company so I joined Gloucester with Tim Harris giving me a chance to play football again and get my name out there he really got my firing again and enjoying football, I left at the end of the season because Tamworth brought me and I thought it was the best option for me.

After your season by Gloucester you played for Tamworth FC and Salisbury FC. How did you experience these periods?

But it didn’t work out the way I wanted it to with the manager that signed me there getting sacked so I left them and went to Salisbury where I went on loan and I really enjoyed playing there I should of went there leaving Gloucester instead of Tamworth looking back at it now but joining Salisbury and getting promoted was a real high and enjoyable time.

Since 2019, you are back at Gloucester, what are your targets for the rest of this season?

I joined back to Gloucester half way through last season and help them survive a relegation battle with the new manager and some unbelievable characters to keep the club in the north, this season now is all about staying up again ready for next season with the new stadium and hopefully bringing football back to Gloucester where all the fans have missed for a long time it really will be a moment to remember going back home 🙌🏻.
