Northern Jets have bolstered their midfield with the return home of talented footballer Sam Fisher.
After only announcing a coach late last month, the Jets have made up for lost time with the first of what the club hopes will be a number of recruits.
Fisher, 27, returns home to the Jets after two seasons with Belconnen in AFL Canberra.
He is a former co-coach, captain and best and fairest winner at the club and also a Farrer League representative.
Fisher is looking forward to throwing on a Jets jumper yet again.
"It should be good. I'm pretty keen to get back out home and have a crack," Fisher said.
"It will be good to play with my brothers again and Mitch (Haddrill) and that again. All of the local boys. It will be good."
Fisher has moved back from Canberra to live in Temora. He played in the Kangaroos' three premierships from 2012-14 and was best-on-ground in the third success.
He admits he thought about linking with the Kangaroos again.
"I definitely thought about it, going back to Temora," he said.
"I have some connections there but I decided to come home this year and help out."
Fisher was part of Belconnen's losing grand final team last year. The year previously they were knocked out of finals in straight sets after claiming the minor premiership.
Despite that, he enjoyed the experience.
"It was good. Definitely a bit more challenging," he said.
"It was a lot quicker than the footy back home and there's a few more people to pick from there so it's a bit of a step up. But I'm looking forward to playing back home."
Fisher will strengthen a Jets midfield group that has no shortage of quality and joins the likes of Gerald Clear Medallist, Mitch Haddrill, Jack Fisher and Chris Bell.
Under new coach Josh Avis, the Jets will look to return to finals after finishing seventh last year, two games outside the top five.
"I think we should be alright. We've kept the core group from last year and we're still in talks with a few blokes," Fisher said.
"They had a pretty good spine last year so if we keep that group together and add a few good players in, we only missed finals by a game or two so hopefully we can win enough games to get our nose into finals and you never know what happens from there."
The Jets have also announced Brad McKinnon as assistant coach.
