The Horsham Saints have made two handy acquisitions ahead of the 2020 Wimmera Football League season, including a former premiership player.
Center half-back Luke Hendy arrives from Navarre, while 2015 and 2016 premiership player Daniel Rees has also signed on for the upcoming season.
Rees, described by Saints coach Daniel Johns as a wingman, was a potent part of the Saints' drought-breaking grand final victory in 2015, named his side's second best on the day.
Rees has since played in the Central Highlands league and Bendigo Football League.
"We had a few good years with the Saints and that was very memorable. Hopefully we can do things like that again in the future," Rees said. "There's probably half a dozen guys still at the club that I played with from my last year there.
"It's a good community too, within the club, and I've had lasting friendships from my time there. A lot of the committee members, families around the club I know pretty well, so it's a whole club connection."
Rees said he was hoping the Saints could build a strong foundation for the future next season.
"They have a lot of exciting, fit, skillful, young guys, which is pretty exciting," Rees said.
"I'm just looking forward to gelling with the group and getting a bit of momentum with the boys."
Departing from the club, in addition to outgoing playing-coach Luke Fisher who has joined Minyip-Murtoa, is talented young half-back Angus Gove.
David Johns said Gove was leaving the region for further education. Johns said the club was still talking to a few more players as we head toward the Christmas period.
