KOLORA-NOORAT will welcome back a favourite son for the 2019 Warrnambool and District league season.
Premiership forward Mark Clissold will pull on the Power jumper for the first time since the flag victory over Old Collegians in 2017.
The 26-year-old rejoins the district league powerhouse after his second stint at Terang Mortlake (2015-16 and 2018).
Power coach Ben Walsh said he was eager to have the “home grown” goal-kicker, who kicked 28 goals from 15 games in the Hampden league in 2018, return to the club.
“We are really excited to have Mark back. He is a home grown player and has spent most of career at the Power and played his juniors here,” he said.
“He has lots of family and friends here and I know he is excited to be back. He went to Terang Mortlake with our full support, as he wanted to challenge himself, and he had a good year.
“But that pull of playing with close mates and family is what got him back. No doubt he will come back a more experienced and mature player.”
Clissold, who will jump into a junior development role within the club, joins Nick Bourke (Leopold), Ben Reid (Camperdown) and Martin Wynd (Terang Mortlake) as junior players returning to Kolora-Nooorat.
Three-time premiership player Sam Moloney has also returned as an non-playing assistant coach.
Walsh, who will enter his first year of coaching the Power next season, confirmed Melbourne-based key forward Ben Fraser had re-signed. The Power star played 13 games and kicked 43 goals in 2018.
