Russells Creek could be the A grade team to watch this Warrnambool and District league season.
Creek has bolstered its defence with recruits Ashlea Ferguson and Siobhan White.
Ferguson, a goal defence, returns to club after enjoying success with North Warrnambool Eagles in the Hampden league.
White, a wing defence, has moved from Colac District league club Birregurra.
They pair have already started gelling well.
"Even at training, I know Ash is there - I'm going to throw and she's going to jump and catch it," White said.
"It's honestly amazing, we've only played together twice and we just work really well as a team," Ferguson added.

Ferguson played in North Warrnambool Eagles' division one premiership last year after moving from Creek three years ago.
The 18-year-old learnt plenty from playing with the Eagles.
"I definitely found my voice," she said.
"When I was younger, I was a little bit shy."
She has returned to the blue and white to play alongside friends she went to Warrnambool College with.
"This club will always feel like home to me," she said.
The defender first started playing for Russells Creek when she was 11.
The athletic youngster has returned to the club where she earned the nickname 'Go Go Gadget' for her long limbs.
White recently moved to Warrnambool from Colac for work at Warrnambool Locksmiths.
Her boss said "if you're going to play (netball), you can only play for Russells Creek".
"That's why I'm here," White said with a laugh.
White, a self-described "bulldog", will bring competitive spirit and plenty of voice to Creek's backcourt.
The 25-year-old is also a keen footballer and played for the Colac Imperials women's team last year.
The midfielder has decided to prioritize netball this season.
Coach Thalia Robertson believes the duo will work well together this season.
"I'm super excited to have them both," she said.
"Ashlea is a junior player we had in the past and it's great to get her back to the club this year.
"She's nice and tall and athletic which is fantastic.
"And I was super surprised to see Siobhan at try-outs and I'm pretty excited to have her on board.
"She a nice and quick little mid-courter/defender."
