A pair of local soccer players have caught the eye of a national powerhouse following some stellar play in the National Premier League 2 competition.
Ballarat City duo Chudiar Tharjiath and Xagai Douhadji both found the back of the net in the side's victory last week against Melbourne City.
The performance turned some heads within the A-League development squad and the pair have been subsequently brought in to train with Melbourne City.
It's another positive sign for Ballarat City as a development program who recently saw former player Brandon Lauton make his debut of Melbourne Victory's senior team.
Melbourne City have been in the news of late within Ballarat following news the club would be playing at Mars Stadium in 2020 against Western United.
