After finishing in fifth spot last season and having missed out on playing in the major rounds for a handful of years, the South Clare Football Club have their sights set on finals in 2017.
The likes of Brodie Murphey, Mitch Reynolds, Ben Rossi, Matty Allen and Brendon Barton are set to help the Demons achieve that goal, along with promoted under 17 players Nick Owen, Ben Pearce and Ben Dinning.
Joining the team this year will also be Shaun McWaters, who has played with Allen previously on the Yorke Peninsula, and Alex Heinrich who is returning to the club.

A grade coach Justin Michael said a few others would add depth.
“We have a really good young group of guys coming through the ranks who will join the side,” he said.
“Preseason has been pretty solid and numbers have been good on the track.”
Mick Liebelt will support the team as fitness coach, and Kev Reynolds will step into the role of B grade coach.
South Clare have two trial games scheduled – against Ardrossan on March 25 and Two Wells on April 1 – before the start of the season.
