Sometimes a change is as good as a holiday, and in sport it is no different.
Just ask Sebastopol Vikings recruit Luna Folly.
The 19-year-old has notched two goals in his first three games at the club and is showing no signs of slowing down.
"I've always loved Vikings, and I always wanted to play there, I just never got the chance," he told The Courier this week.
"Now that I have, I want to show the fans and the players that I want to succeed for them."
The change of scenery came at the right time for Folly who joined the club last month after leaving Ballarat City. After falling victim to what he deemed a lack of opportunity with his old club, Folly was fast losing passion for the game.
Turns out a change was all he needed.
"Things weren't going well, and I wasn't enjoying training, and when I'm not enjoying where I am I don't play well," he said.
"I knew Vikings were building for the future, and me being 19, I saw myself being part of that in the long-term. I still wanted to play with quality players and I wanted to play for something."
It didn't take long for Folly to adjust to state league competition.
In his debut match for the club against Point Cook, the newcomer announced himself by scoring a goal in his very first game.
"I wanted to score and show the team that I'm a natural goal scorer which I think I've always been," Folly said.
Two games later he hit the scoreboard again in his side's narrow loss to Strathmore earlier this month.

Despite having played and trained with premier league players with Ballarat City, he said the standard at a state league level is nothing to sneeze at.
"The standard is different, players are more physical, and I feel like they're more motivated and hungry," Folly said.
The West African's play has been a beacon of light in an otherwise up-and-down season for the Vikings which has struggled with inconsistency.
Folly said the players around him, as well as his ability to move freely in the forward half had been key to his early success.
Sebastopol Vikings head coach Michael Goodman, who previously worked with Folly during a stint at Ballarat City, said he saw an opportunity when Folly expressed interest in joining the club.
Goodman said Folly possessed a pace and a power to go past players, as well as a composure to finish in front of goals.
He said so far, Folly's statistics spoke for themselves.
"I was confident Vikings could offer a playing platform that could suit his style," he said.
"I've known Luna for a number of years now, and under myself he's scored a lot of goals, and we're expecting that not to change.
"We're pleased to have him and I'm sure he'll be a crowd favorite, and continue bringing up his score tally for us."
