TAYLORS Lake has locked in its coaches for the 2021 Horsham District football league season.
Brandon Weatherson will remain at the helm for a third year, while 2020 recruit Lee Marshall joins him as a co-coach of the senior side.
Outgoing co-coach and big-name recruit Taylor Milner has stood down for personal reasons, but will remain at the club as a player.
Marshall said the club was hopeful of putting a disappointing year behind them.
"We put in a lot of work through the pre-season and had some good recruits, so for the season to be cut short was really disappointing," he said.
"We didn't even get a crack at it.
"But hopefully we can lock everyone in for next year and start building again."

Marshall has previous coaching experience at Beaufort, where he coached the under-18s for several seasons and the reserves side in 2018.
He was hoping to bring some of the valuable experience he acquired at the Central Highlands league club.
"With the time off, I think it's going to give us a chance to work on a few things," he said.
"I can hopefully bring some different game styles and set-ups. We're a very young side, so speed and ball movement is going to be a big one for us.
"More pressure off the ball is a really important one for us as well."
Weatherson said he was excited to see what the playing group could achieve.
"I think we would've competed a lot better this year than we did (in 2019)," he said.
"We had a pretty good list. It still probably wouldn't have been up there with Harrow-Balmoral or Noradjuha-Quantong, but I think we would've been a lot more competitive."
Weatherson also tipped Marshall to be a formidable player in the Horsham District league.
"He's a very, very smart footballer, and has got a lot of valuable ideas he'll be able to bring to the table," he said.
Weatherson added that he was optimistic most of the playing list would re-commit for the long-awaited 2021 season.
