PREMIERSHIP forward Jesse Dalton is expected add firepower to a talent-laden Nirranda forward line, re-signing after a season with Mininera and District club Penshurst.

Nirranda coach Shane Threlfall, who also recently re-signed alongside co-mentor Shane Quick, told The Standard Dalton would help the Blues towards a third-successive finals series.

“We’re working hard to get former players back to the club, and Jesse has committed. It’s fantastic to have him back,” Threlfall said.

“He was terrific in finals two years ago and he gives us another avenue to goal.”
