HistoryEdit

The history of Tarant Wójcin began in the 1993 . In that time the group of people from local arena decided to reactivate the old club Błękitni Wójcin (Blue Wójcin). This club was quite popular in the arena in 70th and 80th. However they called themselves Tarant, which means a kind of horse, but use old colour of t-shirts. The main person who was main inspirator of reactivation was Karol Łaszkiewicz - player, chairman and manager in one person. Thanks his attitiude the club could exist many years until now. The first year of existence was quite difficult. The team had to play their home matches far from home, because there wasn't any pitch where they could play. In the late 90th Tarant finally got a pitch and could play at home. The rivalization in league was always dramatic. Tarant in almost every season was close to achieve promotion to higher class, but always something happened and it failed. Fortunately in the season 2005/2006 [Karol Łaszkiewicz built a team who achieve big success winning promotion to A-klasa. In the first season in A Klasa the Karol Łaszkiewicz's team reached fifth place. Next season (2007/2008) was the last one of legendary chairman and manager Karol Łaszkiewicz. He resigned after humiliating defeat against Burza Nowa Wieś Wielka 0:8 . Former player Gerard Ziółkowski became a new chairman of club. The team ended season 2007/2008 on 9th place. Season 2008/09 was paradoxically the best and the worst in Tarant's history. The team won promotion to Liga Okręgowa, but due to financial problems the team was incorporated and renamed on Kujawskie-Pogranicze Jeziora Wielkie. The last game of Tarant Wójcin took place on August 2, 2009 - the game in Polish Cup - Regional Round against Orłowianka Orłowo . The result was 3:3 (Tarant won Penalty Shoutout 3:2) .
