SOUTH Warrnambool is celebrating the signature of one of the Hampden league's most exciting talents.
Star midfielder Josh Saunders is back at Friendly Societies Park after a one-season stint at Geelong Football League outfit South Barwon.
Saunders, who spent four seasons at St Kilda and managed 22 games, originally signed for the Roosters in 2016.
The 25-year-old spent two seasons at South Warrnambool, one marred by injury, but established himself as one of the Hampden league's most explosive midfielders.
His influence was felt at South Barwon - he featured in the Swans' best in 14 out of 18 matches - in a side hit by injuries.
Roosters president Steve Harris said Saunders' return was "terrific" for the club.
