Learmonth remains in talks regarding a one-off appearance from retired AFL great Luke Hodge.
Hodge was set to appear for the Lakies in round one of the 2020 Central Highlands Football League season, but that never happened due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Former Learmonth president Matt Hines, who has been one of the key figures involved in luring Hodge to the CHFL, said it was up to the 36-year-old in relation to when - and if - he would play for the club this season.
"The club definitely still wants it to happen, it's in Hodge's court due to his work commitments," Hines said.
Hines said a number of marquees had been sold for the game last year and the round one clash against Rokewood-Corindhap was set to be "massive".
The four-time AFL premiership player had planned to run out alongside good friend Matt Jackson in his 100th senior game for Learmonth, with childhood mates Jake Carmody and Micah Buchanan to also play.
Hodge, from Colac, played 305 AFL games for Hawthorn and another 41 for the Brisbane Lions. He won premierships with the Hawks in 2008, 2013, 2014 and 2015 as well as two Norm Smith medals.
Learmonth is scheduled to take on Rokewood-Corindhap in round one of the new season at home on Saturday, April 17.
Nick Willox will again be senior coach of the club and confirmed this week that former Ballarat Swans player James Crilly was among the Lakies' recruits for the upcoming campaign.
Learmonth finished 12th on the ladder under Willox in season 2019.
