As Lake Albert continues to chase a number of fresh faces, they are also hoping to benefit from significant internal improvement.
Coach Mitch Tinnock says he is looking for youngsters James Trevaskis and Will Lonsdale to play beyond their years and push for meaningful first-grade roles, having identified them as promising young players of the future.
Both players showed promising signs in reserves last season, Trevaskis in midfield and Lonsdale primarily in defence.
“Jimmy is a real technical player, he has great skills, is a good passer and reads the play well,” Tinnock said.
“Will is more of aggressive tackling type player, he goes in hard and is very young and enthusiastic.
“That can even be his downfall at times, but it’s definitely a good thing, you love to have someone who shows so much passion in the jersey.
“Those are definitely guys who have a shot at seeing some first-grade action this year.”
The Sharks have also added Junee’s Steven Edwards, who is expected sit on the fringe of the first-grade side.
Edwards played with Tinnock at Lake Albert when the pair won the 2013 reserve grade premiership together.
