Round one action continues in the North Gippsland Football League this weekend when Glengarry and Traralgon Tyers United meet on Saturday at Glengarry Recreation Reserve from 2pm.
Glengarry finished seventh in season 2017 and managed six wins and with a youthful side taking to the park this year, the Magpies will be reliant on a handful of more senior players to lead from the front.
Clubman Drew McGrath comes back to the Pies in a playing-coach capacity and will be supported on the frontline by new recruit Hayden Britten, who joins from Morwell in the Gippsland League.
Chris Wangman will also be a pillar of strength for Glengarry up forward after taking out the club’s leading goal kicker and best and fairest awards last year.
For TTU, Michael Duncan takes over the reins after coming across from Morwell and has high hopes for the Bombers in 2018, who he believes have “some of the most talented footballers” in the competition.
Recruits Billy Morrison (Ferntree Gully), Adam Bailey (Yallourn Yallourn North) and Jack Brown (Morwell) have all been earmarked as front-runners for the Bombers.
When the sides last met in round 15 in season 2017, TTU trailed at every break before a final-quarter barrage helped them overcome a 19-point deficit to win by 11.
