WHAT do Laurence Angwin, Relton Roberts, Damien Cupido and Kane Munro have in common?
They are all former AFL players having a kick in the Mallee Football League this season.
President Alan Malcolm said the players three of whom were signed up during the off-season were a massive coup for the league.
Mr Malcolm said he got the chance to watch Ouyen United trio Angwin, Cupido and Roberts in action against Sea Lake-Nandaly Tigers at the weekend, and liked what he saw.
"We're really pleased about it because they're up against the Mallee players, and our players are holding up their own which is good for the league," he said.
Mr Malcolm said Cupido who played 53 AFL matches with Essendon and Brisbane in particularly caught the eye of the Ouyen Recreation Reserve crowd.
"He's got a raking left-foot kick and the crowd was certainly appreciative," he said.
Ouyen president Tony Cua said a trip to the Northern Territory with one of the club's major sponsors Billy Morrish resulted in a meeting with Angwin a former Adelaide and Carlton player and Cupido.
"Billy also sponsors Southern Districts in the Northern Territory Football League, which is the club that Laurence and Damien play for up there," he said.
"We just sat down after they finished a game and had a bit of a chat to see if they were interested in coming down and one thing led to another."
Cupido made headlines Australia-wide last year for his remarkable goal-kicking feat with Southern Districts, where he booted 102 goals in 13 games to break a 27-year NTFL record.
Mr Cua said both Cupido and Angwin worked and lived in the area and had settled in well, however Angwin was in doubt for round two with a knee injury, which he suffered against the Tigers.
Roberts, who played two games with Richmond in 2010 before returning to the Northern Territory, also debuted for the Demons at the weekend and showed glimpses of potential.
Munro returned to his home club, Walpeup-Underbool, after 18 games in four seasons with the West Coast Eagles between 2000-03 and has since been a star of the competition.
The dual-WAFL premiership player had a season to remember in 2012, kicking 48 goals in 18 games, which included three in the Roos' 109-point grand final win over Sea Lake-Nandaly.
