Waubra premiership player James Lukich is joining Ballarat Football League reigning premier East Point.
Lukich is expected to strengthen the back-to-back premier's already powerful midfield.
East Point football manager Dean Hetherington said the solidly built Lukich was a great addition and would fit in well.
Lukich continues a flow of high-end CHFL talent to join the BFL Roos under the reign of now two-time premiership coach Jake Bridges.
Jacob Brown (Hepburn), Cameron Lovig (Daylesford) and Joel Mahar (Bungaree) have all become premiership players with East Point after crossing from the CHFL, as has Buninyong's Joel Ottavi, who joined the club via Keilor.
The move to East Point marks a return to the BFL for the much-travelled Lukich.
He began his senior football with Ballarat Swans after graduating from junior ranks.
He debuted with the Swans in 2012 while still in the under-18.5s and made almost 50 senior appearances in four years - playing in their 2014 grand final loss to North Ballarat City.
It was while with Ballarat that he also played a handful of games with Bendigo in the VFL in 2014
Lukich returned to VFL with North Ballarat in 2016 and debuted with the Roosters in their last year in 2017.
He had St Joseph's in Geelong as his home club in 2016, where he played alongside now East Point teammate Daniel Semmens, and then linked up with Waubra.
Lukich quickly became one of the CHFL's leading players in 2017.
Lukich's last season with the Roos will be his most memorable.
Despite missing the back half of the home and away campaign with a bad ankle injury, he finished just three votes short of winning the CHFL's best and fairest, the Geoff Taylor Medal.
He returned for finals and helped carry Waubra to premiership glory with a best-on-ground display in the decider against Hepburn.
It is Lukich's brother Geordie, who missed last season's grand final due to injury, will remain with Waubra.
