One of the key influences in Hepburn’s Central Highlands Football League premiership success has requested a transfer after just one year at the club.
Kamen Ogilvie had a big season for the Burras in 2017, but has lodged a clearance to East Sunbury in the Essendon District competition.
Ogilvie was recruited to the Burras from East Sunbury for the most recent campaign. He played 18 senior games for Hepburn, kicked 12 goals and was named in the side’s best on four occasions.
The fleet-footed onballer also represented the CHFL in the interleague battle with the Southern competition during May.
The Highlanders suffered their second-straight loss in the AFL Victoria Community Championships, going down by just four points in Lyndhurst.
Ogilvie departs a Hepburn team that will be coached by Segifili Asa Leausa next year. Asa Leausa has taken charge following the resignation of Jason Olver, who guided the club to the flag.
Meanwhile, three CHFL clubs are still yet to announce senior coaches for the 2018 season.
Springbank is out to replace Michael Searl, Gordon is chasing a successor to Gary Learmonth and Learmonth is hunting someone to fill the vacancy left by Steve Biggin.
The most recent to confirm a coach is Daylesford, which will be steered by Zac Tisdale next season.
