YYN have picked up Adam Bailey (ex-Morwell) and having a current Trood Award medallist, is a recruiting coup for the Bombers, there are many ex-Bombers expected to heed the call and return to the fold. Yarragon have appointed last year's assistant coach and best & fairest winner in Stuart Edwards who originally came from Bunyip. Colin King has taken over the reins at Morwell East and weith Daniel Hawkins as his assistant the East are looking good at thistime of the season. Dean Caldow has accepted the position at Newborough and has replaced Glenn Michie who resigned due to work and travel. Hill End have been impressed with Brad Sinclair as their new coach after good attendance at training. All the other clubs have re-appointed their last season coaches. Thorpdale (Nathan Scurrah), Boolarra (Tony Giardina), Trafalgar (Jock Mcfarlane), and dual premiers Mirboo North have stuck with Troy Hamilton with Clancy Bennett returning from Sth Australia as assistant coach.
