Edenhope-Apsley have announced the signing of three talented footballers ahead of the 2020 Horsham District football league season.
Headlining the new list of recruits is former North Central football league star Darcy Harrison, who has played for Donald for close to the last decade.
Edenhope-Apsley coach Guy Smith said Harrison was an excellent pick-up.
"He is a former best and fairest and a five-time league representative. Probably one of the North Central football league's best on-ballers," Smith said.
"I would say the North Central league is equivalent, if not better than the Wimmera League, so it's great to get him on board.
"He's sort of a six-foot midfielder, super quick, exceptional skills and he's going to add a lot to our midfield."

Also signing on for next season is the returning Dylan Vanzini and two-time premiership player with Kyabram Aaron Hayes.
Vanzini grew up playing for Edenhope-Apsley, before moving away and pursuing a higher standard of football.
His football resume includes a stint with Glenelg in the South Australian National Football League (SANFL).
"He's been playing with Angaston in the Barossa football league," Smith said.
"He's 24, a key forward that can go through the midfield as well."
Smith said long-term Saints fans would have positive memories of Vanzini in the District league.
"Before he left he was playing centre-half forward for Edenhope as a 15 year old," Smith said. "He's got a lot of talent.
"He's going to be travelling and returning home so that is huge for us as well. He'll be that key forward."
Smith was also optimistic about Hayes' potential as a versatile midfielder.
Smith said it had been a positive start to the off-season for the Saints, with a significant amount of player turnover.
Smith was hopeful there would be more signings to come.
"We're trying to pose a threat," Smith said.
"There's been a really positive vibe at the club, and even some really talented kids have decided to try and travel home and get to the club so that's looking really positive too.
"We're still working on (recruiting). We've still got a few more to come but so far that's where we're at."
