Football career

He played in the youth teams of FC Dynamo Moscow, then moved to FC Saturn where he impressed some SC Braga scouts who took him to play for them. But he didn't make it through to the first team, playing only for Braga B. He then moved to Latvia where he played with FHK Liep─üjas Metalurgs, who went on to win the 2006 Latvian cup, coming second in the league.

After a spell with FC Kuban Krasnodar, he signed for FK Riga, playing for the club in the UEFA Intertoto Cup, where he impressed Bohemian F.C. manager Pat Fenlon. On 31 July 2008, he signed a contract with Bohs until the end of the season [1] and made his debut for the Gypsies in 3-0 win over Cobh Ramblers at Dalymount Park on August 1. Kalonas adapted well to the League of Ireland and netted his first goal for Bohs in a 2-0 win over Galway United on August 22. He scored in 2010 world cup qualifying against Romania. He quickly became a fan favourite, netting the winner in a game against rivals Shamrock Rovers and the deciding penalty in a shoot-out to claim The Double in the FAI Cup Final against Derry City. He also became the first Lithuainian to play in an FAI Cup Final.

In 2009, he signed a 3-year contract with FC Metalurh Zaporizhya. In his first season, Kalonas has played 11 games and scored 1 goal, which came against FC Metalurh Donetsk.
