In the higher league of the championship of the USSR supported Moscow "Locomotive" (1953-1957; 85 games) and Leningrad "Zenith" (1957, 11 games).

In football many cases when the fatherly craft is transferred by right of succession to sons are known. We take some examples from world history of football: Swedes Гуннар and Thomas Nordal, Frenchmen Jean and Jury Dzhorkaeff, Uruguayans Hulio and Paolo Monterro, Italians Valentino and Alessandro Maccola, one more Italian married couple Chezare and Paolo Маldini, Hollands Yohan and Hard Krojf. In the former USSR-Grigory and Vladimir Fedotovy, Victor and Sergey Shustikovy, Sergey and Dmitry Kramarenko. There was and in the Gomel football a father and son Utkiny …
Today we will tell about others about others Gomel football players - about the father and the son Kublitsky, left after ourselves a bright trace in history not only the Gomel football in more details.
Vsevolod KUBLITSKY, certainly, one of the legendariest persons in history of all Belarus football. Thanking its series of sketches-memoirs published in a press in the late fifties, all have learnt - as football in Gomel and Belarus arose. And, even, has named exact date - July, 1910.
In one of July days 1910 young Sowing Kublitsky with the contemporaries has solved «great secret of a leather ball». One of the strongest football players of the south of Russia A.Libman appointed for work in the Gomel branch of the Oryol bank has appeared the owner of a mysterious subject.
«Next Sunday, early in the morning, - recollects Kublitsky, - we were forwarded on the party of the river Sozh opposite to a city. This day for the first time in Gomel blow on a football has sounded. For the first time in a city … played football. But that it was for football! All participants of game in wild passion, a heap rushed behind a ball, kicked it who as could».
«The first gymnasia soccer team» (ПГФК) has soon been organised. Its captain became Libman. To train have begun in a grammar school court yard. The hearing about new game promptly extended among city youth. «To send on errands football» (football named not game, and a ball) besides a command always the wishing gathered many. After all the football in a city was unique. Soon fans of game have got over from a close gymnasia court yard on spacious waste ground.
In 1911 Vsevolod Kublitsky together with command ПГФК, has won the first championship of Gomel on football.
In 1912 ПГФК has replaced the name with "Sports" and in 1914 already "Sports" became last pre-war champion of a city.
After war and revolutions, in 1918 Vsevolod Kublitsky together with other enthusiasts has created at Vsevobuch’s sports club.
In 1923 Kublitsky participated in games of the second championship of Russia, playing for a national team of Gomel. To in parallel active performances, Vsevolod conducts the big organizational work on football development. Under the initiative and under the guidance of Kublitsky the city public had been put in pawn and constructed stadium "Locomotive".
Last time Vsevjlod Kublitsky left in the field of Minsk stadium "Dynamo" on October, 12th, 1935. On a holiday devoted to closing of a summer sports season, it has supported a national team of veterans of the Belarus Soviet socialist republic.
Vadim Vsevolodovich, son Vsevoloda Kublitsky, was born on July, 13th, 1926 in Gomel where has made the first football steps. Unfortunately, we yet have no data, from what command Vadim Kublitsky has got to Moscow "Locomotive". Nevertheless, it is precisely known, that it has spent in a command about 1953 4,5 seasons and has played for it in the higher league of the championship of the USSR of 85 games. In the same place to it the rank «the Master of sports of the USSR» has been appropriated. Still a half-season it supported Leningrad "Zenith" where has spent 11 games in national championship. The most interesting, that for so short term it became one of the best goalkeepers of the country. It proves to be true that the known Soviet statistican of football Konstantin Yesenin in the well-known book «Football: records, paradoxes, tragedies, sensation» has given big enough place to our fellow countryman. We result endurance about Vadim Kublitsky from the chapter devoted to the best Soviet goalkeepers more low:
«In 1954 at the head of the list of the best goalkeepers - V.Kublitsky («Locomotive», Moscow). Kublitsky has repeated record of Homich - has passed exactly as much balls (13) for same, as well as at Homich, number of games (22). But it would be desirable to note this goalkeeper somehow. After all it has won a superiority palm tree, supporting the command which has occupied only 10 place in the championship. And if we say, that goalkeepers act for a command-champion especially confidently, having before themselves more, than at others, reliable advanced posts the result Kublitsky in «Locomotive» should be noted as one of the best achievements of the Soviet football. Who knows, how there would be a modest destiny Kublitsky as goalkeeper if its command was more feasible. And to the big football Kublitsky has got already at rather mature age for the sportsman …»
