Cobram Football Club has recruited former Shepparton Bears players Daniel McIntyre and Matthew Campbell for the coming season.
McIntyre will add strength to the Tigers’ midfield as well as providing a forward line option. Campbell is a versatile defender who can play on a tall or small. Both are aged 24.
‘‘Daniel and Matt tick all the boxes of what we were looking for, good blokes, can train at the club, right age and have mates already at our club,’’ president Chris Ryan said.
‘‘(Coaches Trevor Mills) and (Mat Hyde) had a strong midfield type and a defender as their priorities.
‘‘We were lucky enough to get exactly that.’’
At this stage Cobram may have lost up to five players from the 2012 squad — including Rob Osborne, defenders Kane Boyer and Beau Wilson, ruckman Joe Sullivan and small forward Shaun Wilson.
On top of that, only 10 players from the 2011 grand final team are still at the club.
The Tigers will be looking to their reliable group of experienced players and local youngsters in 2013.
Tyron Hill (returning from a knee operation) and Sam Gemmill being on the track each week will also be a bonus.
‘‘Hydey and I have plenty of faith in our existing players,’’ Mills said.
‘‘We have a group of players who we think have the right work ethic and will be very coachable. The young players have their feet on the ground and the older blokes set a good example.’’
The club’s football teams will begin official training on Wednesday, January 16.
