Former AFL Premiership player Barry Hall is set to play his first game with the Harcourt Lions.
Hall will take to the field when the Lions host Navarre in round ten of the Maryborough Castlemaine District Football Netball League.
"It's been a little while but hopefully I will make a good return," Hall told the Harcourt Lions.
"It's a home game for Harcourt and let's hope we get a good crowd and I kick a few goals."
Hall, whose career with St Kilda, Sydney and Western Bulldogs spanned 289 games across 16 seasons, has been working and spending time in the district.
He finished up his career as an AFL player at the end of 2011 and has since played only a handful of one-off matches in suburban and country leagues throughout Victoria.
After the first three rounds of the 2019 MCDFNL season, Harcourt sits in sixth position on the ladder with a 2-1 record.
