COOLAMON could start next season at Riverina League flag favourites after another big signing.
The Hoppers have welcomed Allister Clarke on board for next season.
Clarke, 25, arrives at Coolamon with an accomplished background at AFL Sydney club Sydney University.
Clarke is a three-time best and fairest winner at Sydney Uni, and was the captain of their 2020 AFL Sydney Premier League premiership.
He also boasts NEAFL experience and played with Murray Bushrangers in the TAC Cup.
Clarke, a midfielder, hails from Finley originally and will move to Wagga in the new year.
It caps off a good week for Coolamon, who welcomed former Eastlake best and fairest winner Shae Darcy to the club.
So far this off-season, Coolamon have welcomed on board Clarke, Darcy and Leeton-Whitton's Bailey Wood on board, with Max Hillier (Coleambally) the only confirmed departure.
The Hoppers were somewhat disappointing this year, given the talent on their list, finishing fourth when the season came to a premature end with eight wins from 14 games.
But with Jake Barrett and Mark Carroll entering their second year in charge, along with some big recruits, the Hoppers are well-positioned for a serious challenge.
