Deloraine is salivating over the return of a budding superstar, with Tait Highet set to rejoin the NTFA club in 2020.
The NTFA's under-18 representative captain in 2018, Highet spent last season with NWFL club Devonport having played his junior football with the Roos.
After spending much of 2019 injured the 18-year-old builder is excited to return to the club that named him its most promising young player just one year ago.
"I only played six games [with Devonport] and then got injured and sat out the rest of the season," the former St Brendan Shaw College student said.
"With a couple of the boys coming back out Lochy [Dornauf] got a hold of me and wanted me to come back out here.
"I enjoyed playing here two years ago so why not?"

Highet's arrival follows the signing of another former Devonport gun in Brayden Butler, and coincides with St Pats' reserves premiership player Addy Cosslett's return to the Roos.
As well as helping Deloraine return to finals for the first time in four years, Highet is also keen to reignite his family's connection with the club.
"My Dad grew up here playing so it's a good club to play at," he said.
"I remember being down here when I was younger watching him play so it's good to be able to play on the same ground.
"I'd like to think [I'm the better player] but I think he'd have something different to say."
