The Wimmera Football League is back for 2019 and the first round sees Ararat host the Warrack Eagles.
The Rats are buoyed after welcoming new recruits Callum Mendes and Dylan Shelley, bolstering their midfield stocks.
The Warrack Eagles were busy in the off-season too and are excited by the return of former club-men Scott Adams and Jayden Werner.
An exciting match-up lies ahead, as both teams aim for another finals appearance.
Later, Minyip-Murtoa take on the Horsham Saints, in Murtoa, in the twilight game of the round.
The Burras hope to overcome the departure of key players while the Horsham Saints are looking to better last season's preliminary final loss.
