North Shore duo Alex Bowd and Jonny Fazio have signed with Clunes in the Central Highlands Football League.
Bowd and Fazio will inject welcome experience to the Magpies.
Bowd has played more than 90 games with the Geelong league club, while Fazio has chalked up 85.
Clunes coach Johno Leoncini said it was pleasing to have attracted some seasoned players to the club.
He said each was best described as a utility.
Leoncini said he did not see fixed roles for either. He said Bowd and Fazio were versatile with much to offer.
Their arrival is a great start to the pre-season for Clunes, which finished on the bottom of the ladder with just one win this year.
Leoncini said it was more important than ever these days to not only attract good players, but impressive people.
He has no doubt the Geelong imports will add to the club off the field as well as players.
Bowd played under-age football with St Mary's in the GFL before switching to North Shore in 2015.
He was twice kicked 20 goals in a season for the Seagulls, which should prove another asset for Clunes.
Fazio has been in Noreth Shore senior ranks since 2014.
Leoncini said he had approached Bowd and Fazio after hearing from contacts that they might be available.
The signings follow the departure a former Oakleigh Charger midfielder Brody Lawford to Murrumbeena in the Southern league.
Lawford was with Clunes one season.
BALLAN has secured Jamie Rawlings from Caroline Springs.
He made eight senior appearances with the Lakers in Western Region league division one this year.
Rawlings was previously a long-standing player at Melton in the BFL, where he was a teammate of now Ballan coach Tristan Batten.
He played a mix of seniors and reserves with the Bloods.
Dylan Wright from Quambatook in the Golden Rivers league in the state's north will be another new face at Ballan next year.
