The Warrack Eagles will be bolstered by the return of ruckman Scott Adams for the 2019 Wimmera Football League season.
Former Eagles' players Jayden Werner and Adam Schultz have also returned to the Eagles after playing the last several seasons for Jeparit-Rainbow in the Horsham District league.
McKenzie said he was excited to Scott Adams back on board after he played last season for Charlton in the North Central Football League.
"He's a good pick-up for us - he will really help Shannon Argall in the ruck area which means we will be able to play Shannon up forward a little bit more," McKenzie said.
"Werner and Schultz are both back for us as well which is good. They're both key position backmen and that's an area we needed to top up so that's really handy."
For the departures, Jack Wilson and Harry Trezise are unlikely to play many games for the club in 2019 after moving for work commitments.
Both played 19 matches each for the side last season and Wilson booted 31 goals.
"They have both said they aren't going to play anywhere except for us so we might be able to get them back for a few games this season but who knows," McKenzie said.
The Eagles have also missed out on former AFL player and Warracknabeal product Kyle Cheney this season, but McKenzie said Cheney was interested in returning to his home club in the future.
Cheney, 29, was delisted by the Adelaide Crows following the 2018 AFL season after a decade in the league.
McKenzie said while things hadn't aligned for the 2019 season, Cheney was keen to return to the Eagles in the future.
"We had a couple of chats with Kyle, he was keen enough to come back but in the time over Christmas he and his wife have fallen pregnant, so they have decided to stay over in South Australia for this year," McKenzie said.
"But he definitely wants to come back and have a kick before his time is up and was confident he will make it back at some stage.
"He wants to finish his career at his home club so that is pretty exciting."
