ONLY three members of Horsham's and District Soccer Club's senior premiership squad have re-signed as the 2019 season looms.
The Falcons are calling on interested people to register their interest ahead of the 2019 Ballarat and District Soccer Association season, which starts in April.
The club is also without a president. A member will act in the role while the club can find a permanent leader.
A handful of volunteers are working to ensure the club is ready for the new season.
Noah Talbot is a lifelong Falcons player, who has taken on a plethora of roles.
Talbot, 18, will coach the senior side, co-coach the under-15s and under-12s, and will be the club's technical director. He said he wanted to do whatever he could to give back to a club that played a pivotal role in his upbringing.
"The club means a lot to me - I've played here all my life, pretty much since I could run and kick," Talbot said.
"Everyone that has played here has had a really good experience with it - I just want to help keep it going.
"Basically I'm just chipping in wherever I can because we have a lack in coaching people and experienced players."
Talbot said he was hopeful the club would find a president soon, and it could attract enough players for a senior team.
"Our treasurer is liasing with other people (for a president). Nothing is set in stone yet, but it's looking pretty good," he said. "Seeing our core playing group diminish from last year is not what you want. But hopefully numbers will start to grow as we get closer to the season."
Talbot said soccer was often overlooked as a sporting option in the region.
"It seems like a lot of people don't even know there's a soccer club around, which I find crazy," Talbot said.
"To other people, it's just footy, netball, cricket, tennis. But we've seen a lot of young people come over and try soccer and really love it."

Talbot plays football for Taylors Lake and said he was an example it was possible to get involved in the soccer club in addition to other sporting commitments.
"We've had about five people playing soccer and footy at the same time in the past, so it's definitely something you can do," he said. "We train on Wednesdays and Fridays, so there's no clash.
"There's a lot of characteristics from that crossover. A lot of the traits needed to perform well in both sports go hand in hand."
