Edenhope-Apsley will field a new-look team in 2016 as it rekindles its push for a Horsham District A Grade flag.
The Saints were the standout team of 2015, entering the finals series as hot favourites after completing an undefeated home-and-away season.
Finals, however, are a different ball game, and the Saints bowed out in straight sets.
Netball director Lee Fox said the club was determined to again challenge for the premiership.
“A terrific new line-up will see a highly-athletic, versatile and fast-paced team capable of challenging the best clubs in the league,” she said.
Sarah Jude has resumed her role as A Grade coach and will be responsible for rebuilding her team after the departure of a raft of players, including league best-and-fairest winner Emma Ryan.
The Saints have also lost Emma Forster, Cynthia Watt, Lauren Fazlic, Sammy Mulraney and Georgia McLennan.
Ms Fox said the club had recruited strongly to cover its losses.
“We’ve recruited Mon Van Dyke from East Point in Ballarat. She’s a fast-paced midcourter capable of shooting goals,” she said.
“Former Edenhope-Apsley A Grade player Rebecca Carter has returned after travel, along with former league junior best and fairest Alex Lang. Alex has played A Grade with us before and is returning after a year of study.”
Lang will strengthen the side’s defensive capabilities.
“We’ve got Brittany Kirby, an experienced midcourt player with a high level of fitness, and former Horsham Saint and junior state netballer Ema-Lee Rowe, who will also assist in the midcourt.”
