Koroit's midfield received a shot in the arm after 22-year-old winger Lachlan Cairns joined from the Victorian Amateur Football Association's Hampton Rovers.
Cairns moved to Koroit from Melbourne last week to work at a dairy farm in Hawkesdale for nine months.
The exciting prospect won an under 19s flag with Hampton Rovers in 2015 but broke his ankle with five minutes to play in the club's six-point VAFA division one grand final loss to Ormond last year.
But with six games under his belt for the Rovers in 2019, Cairns said he was fighting fit and looked forward to getting his first taste of Hampden league football against South Warrnambool on Saturday.
"I'm sure I'll have a few nerves come Saturday but I'm really excited to play for Koroit," he said.
"There aren't too many clubs that have won five on the trot, so it was an easy choice to make."
And while Cairns was still meeting his new teammates at his first Saints' training session on Tuesday, he said the club and coach Chris McLaren had made a strong first impression.
"Chris has really gone that extra mile to make sure I fit into the community and I really appreciate what he's done for me so far," he said.
"But there's never enough learning to do, so I'm really keen to take my game to the next level.
"I just want to get back to playing my best footy after breaking my leg."
McLaren said Cairns could launch himself straight into the senior side.
