After a tumultuous off-season where Edenhope-Apsley discussed and debated a return to Kowree-Naracoorte-Tatiara league, the Saints enter this season full of optimism and hope.
The club, which has firmed up its place in Horsham District league, has had a prosperous recruiting program in the off-season, and a return to finals action is a real chance after the Saints slid off the pace last year.
The signing of Horsham Saints big man Michael Rowe as coach has given the side a huge fillip. The key tall should dominate a competition devoid of a lot of classy ruckman.
If Rowe can give first use of the ball to his side, the Saints will become a dangerous outfit.
Joining Rowe at the Saints is former club best and fairest and interleague player Chris Oliver, who returns from South Gambier.
The silky-skilled Oliver oozes class and will strengthen the defensive unit.
Edenhope-Apsley has certainly added key-position potency to the side with key forward Jake Ryan from South Gambier and James Kirby, Warracknabeal, joining Rowe and Oliver.
There are also rumours that Rowe might have a few accomplices from Horsham Saints follow him down the Wimmera Highway.
In a further boost for the club, young gun Sam McClure should spend more time in the red, white and black jumper this season after Rebels duties and injuries limited his time at his home club last season.
On the losses side, a trio of quality youngsters are waiting to leave.Bartley Nolan, Grant Cother and Oliver Gabbe are all heading over the border. This will test the depth and speed of the Saints.
