Redan’s Tom Watson is returning to Cobden in the Hampden Football League.
He will join his brother Dan, who is also a former Redan player, at their hometown club.
Dan went back to Cobden last season and is now an assistant coach.
Tom Watson has had an injury-troubled run in five seasons with Redan, with hand and hamstring issues restricting his impact in the Ballarat league.
He had his most productive year with the Lions in 2016, when he made 10 senior appearances.
He played four senior games this year up to mid-season.
Dan Watson had just two years at Redan after moving from Northern Blues in the VFL.
