OUTGOING Tolland coach Daniel Lawrence believes the Wolves will try and hunt down an experienced leader to return to finals after a frustrating Pascoe Cup campaign.
Lawrence injured his ACL in round four of this season and will take the chance to relinquish any official role with the club and, barring a speedy recovery, likely take the season off.
Tolland managed just 20 goals in 18 games to finish eighth and Lawrence felt after two years at the helm it's time for someone with a fresh perspective.
"Hopefully someone else can freshen up some things with some new ideas," he said.
"I think the direction the club is going it they'll get someone from outside, someone that's pretty new to everyone.
"They're probably going to go after a strong leader to help turn the club around and get us toward the top of the ladder.
"They might go after a higher profile name but I'm not sure who they'll go after."
Lawrence said boosting the attacking arsenal will be an obvious focus.
"Going for a player-coach who is a good attack is one option they've got, or even someone that can look to bring in a couple of players," he said.
"Something we lacked was a couple of strikers, that's what they'll aim for."
Goal-scoring brothers Fred and Henri Gardner are on the lookout for a new home after departing National Premier League outfit Wagga City midway through last season.
The Wolves showed some initial interest before they agreed to join Wagga United, but the move never eventuated after failing to come to terms with the Wanderers on a release.
Tolland held their presentation night on Friday with midfielder Col Cummins winning Most Valuable Player, winger Matt Kleine took out players' player and Nick Young the coach's award.
Mikayla Warner won the women's player of the year after Tolland's premiership defence came unstuck in extra time against Hanwood in the grand final.
