With the junior team of the Hanseatic League, he was second in the GDR championship in 1979 . In 1979 he moved up to the squad of the first team of the relegated league and made his debut on September 16, 1979 against Aufbau Sternberg in the FDGB Cup and six days later, on September 22, 1979, in the second-rate GDR league . With two goals in the 3-0 victory at Schiffahrt / Hafen Rostock , he made a convincing start. With the Rostockers, who had been relegated three times from the league in the previous five years, Schlünz managed to rise again as the undefeated leader of the table. He had contributed to it himself with 25 appearances and 11 goals. In the following 1980/81 season he secured relegation with FC Hansa as tenth place in the league.

Until 1985/86 Schlünz played six years for Rostock in the highest East German league and developed into a top performer and playmaker. However, Hansa rose again in 1986 to the GDR league, whereupon in the following season 1986/87 not only the promotion, but also the entry into the FDGB Cup final succeeded. Against 1. FC Lokomotive Leipzig, Schlünz and Rostock lost 4-1 despite being in the lead. With the fourth place in the 1988/89 season Rostock qualified for the international UEFA Cup 1989/90 , in which Schlünz played a game against the Czech representative Baník Ostrava . Hansa dropped out of the competition in the first round.

As captain, Schlünz led FC Hansa in the last championship round of the German Democratic Republic in 1990/91 with six goals in 24 appearances to win the club's first title. In the cup final, which was held for the last time on June 2, 1991, Hansa defeated FC Stahl from Eisenhüttenstadt 1-0 and thus won the double ; Schlünz was used in all cup games and scored a cup goal. In twelve years at FC Hansa, Schlünz had played 228 games in the league (48 goals), 53 appearances in the league (20 goals) and 42 games in the cup (18 goals) up to his integration into the now all-German Bundesliga .

As the last East German champion to take part in the DFB Supercup in 1991 , Schlünz and Hansa lost to 1. FC Kaiserslautern and was the first player in the history of the German Football Association to be sent off with the newly introduced yellow-red card . In the 1991/92 European Cup , Schlünz completed two appearances, but against the later title holder FC Barcelona , Rostock was eliminated again in the first round from an international competition. In the first all-German Bundesliga season 1991/92 Schlünz finished 18th after three goals in 25 games with Hansa and was relegated to the 2nd Bundesliga . In the second division seasons 1992/93 and 1993/94 Schlünz completed another 50 missions for Rostock, in which he was able to achieve six goals. In four DFB Cup appearances during these three seasons, Schlünz failed to score.

Schlünz played 406 competitive appearances for FC Hansa - including 356 league, 46 cup and three European cup appearances as well as one game in the Supercup - making him the player with the most competitive appearances, the third most league appearances and the third most league appearances for Hansa.

In 1994, Schlünz moved to the end of his career together with Gernot Alms for Parchimer FC in Mecklenburg , with whom he rose to the Oberliga Nordost (North Season) in 1994/95 . After seven goals in 28 league games in 1995/96, he ended his active career in 1996.
