Striker David Kolodynski sticking with Rugby Town for the 2016/17 season

Steve Carpenter 8th Jun, 2016 Updated: 27th Oct, 2016

RUGBY Town’s all-time record goalscorer David Kolodynski will be hoping to add plenty more goals to his tally after committing his future to the Northern Premier League Division One South club.

The 27-year-old striker has signed a deal that will keep him at Rugby until May 2017 as he looked to add to his impressive tally of 178 goals in 317 appearances.

Koldynski scored 28 goals last season as Valley finished ninth on 60 points and the striker has opted to activate one year contract extension clause.

‘Kolo’ made his name in the 2008/9 season in the Southern League Premier as he finished as the league’s top scorer with 26 league goals, after progressing through the youth ranks at Town making his debut as a substitute towards the end of the 2005/06 season.

Scoring on his full debut in a 2-0 win over Wealdstone, Kolodynski staked his claims for a first team place in January 2007 with a run of three goals in three games and ended the 2006/7 with six league goals and he made an impact mainly from the bench again in the 07/08 season.

After a sustained chance in the first team at the start of the 08/09 season, the return of Tony Dobson as manager saw Kolodynski return to goalscoring form.

Kolo netted his first hat-trick for the club away to Merthyr in November 2008 and then repeated the feat against Clevedon Town in the next game – a landmark achievement.

Injury hampered a torrid 09/10 season but he still managed nine leagues goals before joining Cambridge City in June 2010 which preceeded spells with Hinckley United and Leamington before returning to Rugby in October 2012 from Bedworth United after over two seasons away from Butlin Road.

Kolodynski netted 35 goals in the 2012/3 season on his return and became the club’s record Southern League goalscorer in October 2013 before breaking more records in the 2013/4 season tipping over the 100 league goal mark and becoming the club’s all-time senior record scorer after with a 39-goal season.

He returned to his hometown club in May 2015 after a short spell with division rivals Kettering Town where he won a Southern League Division One Central Championship medal after joining in November 2014.
