PRZEMYSLAW Kazimierczak has one of the longest names in football and he wants to ensure Darlington supporters do not forget it as he aims to extend his impressive clean sheet record.

Since signing in January last year the Polish keeper has been forced to wait for his chance, being left on the sidelines and farmed out on loan.

But he was finally handed a full debut on Saturday and maintained his remarkable run of never having conceded a goal for Quakers.

Having appeared in a handful of cup games, and as a substitute in the league last season, Kazimierczak’s record now reads played five, conceded none.

The 21-year-old enjoyed a comfortable 90 minutes against Morecambe and he intends to impress during the final six games of the season.

He said: “I am confident I am good enough. It has been frustrating not playing, so many times I have thought about going back home to Poland because I wasn’t playing.

“Everyone was saying to me ‘be patient, you’re a good lad, you’ll get your chance and when that happens try to play well’.

“There are another six games this season so I will be trying to show the club and the supporters that I am good enough for a new contract, either here or somewhere else.”

Kazimierczak, or ‘Chem’ as he is known to team-mates, has been continually overlooked by Quakers.

He has been handed his chance because Andy Oakes has been ruled out for the season with ankle injury.

Oakes was playing after Colchester recalled Dean Gerken.

He had replaced fellow loanee Simon Brown, who returned to Brentford.

With the aforementioned trio were ahead in the pecking order, in December Kazimierczak was sent on loan to Whitby Town, three divisions below Darlington.

Four months later the ambitious Polish keeper has been elevated from the Uni- Bond Premier League to the Football League and he said: “I had some games at Whitby but to be honest I never enjoyed it because I never wanted to play in a division lower than League Two.

“But at least I played some games and had some experience.

“In pre-season I started quite a few friendlies for Darlington, so I thought I was going to be first-choice this season.

“Then I was told Simon Brown was going to come in and I was so gutted.

“When he left in January I thought I was going to get a chance, but I didn’t because Deano came.

“I’m not glad Andy is injured but this is football and you never know what is going to happen.”

And of his five clean sheets, he added: “It is nice to have a record like that and I am proud of it.”
