TWO towering forwards have inked new deals as Kolora-Noorat moves to shore up its premiership defence.
Spearhead Tim Ryan – who booted 93 majors to emerge as the Warrnambool and District Football Netball League’s most prolific forward in 2016 – is returning after a one-year stint in Geelong.
He was joined by young tall Bailey Kemp, who put pen-to-paper after weighing up opportunities in Ballarat, where he is studying.
Kolora-Noorat mentor Danny Finn said both players added versatility to his line-up.
He revealed Ryan would link-up with the senior side mid-year due to travel commitments.
“Tim definitely adds that versatility – he can play in the ruck or down back, which he didn’t do much of in his last stint with us,” Finn said.
“We’re delighted to have Bailey back in as well. They’re two six foot three or four blokes who can play in a number of positions, which is great for us going forward into next year.”
